Back when iOS 6 was first released there was lots of mapping errors but it is a lot more stable now.  However, I've reported this non-existent road 5 times in the 'report a problem' over the past year but it's still there as part of the directions from Auckland to Maraetai.

Are there any other errors like this in NZ, or does anyone know a more effective way to report the problem?

A more effective way to report the problem? Switch to Google Maps..
I have also wasted a fair bit of time trying to get some changes on Apple Maps and had seen no changes as a result. Plenty of roads like that, whenever I search for something on there usually it flicks me off to the States somewhere unless I type it in exactly.

Only used the ipad that one time for directions, after it directed us through a locked gate at the start of that 'road'.

What is the point of a 'Report a Problem' feature if it just goes into a black hole and never followed up..

Now using Nokia Drive which is good apart from questionable lane guidance on junctions, and pronouncing SH1 as Sh-wonn

Is Nokia Drive available on iOS? Funny you mention the pronunciation, I noticed Google Maps has started spelling names it doesn't know how to pronounce.
"Turn left onto I-L-A-M road". I'm sure it used to just have a go and get it mostly right

No, on a windows phone.  iPad (3G with GPS) is great for researching a journey but a bit too big to stick on the windscreen:)

I do tend to use Google Maps on the iPad now though.
