I have driven in London many times (leisure mainly), but was massively frustrated this weekend by crap routing, and wanted to know if London members had filed "map errors" or not.

I was driving around Picadilly +/- 5 blocks in all directions, and was on more than one occasion in the same trip, directed up a one way street, or to turn right where that was not permitted.

Absolute rubbish!

I didn't have time to mark the errors, but shirley there must be enough people on here that live/travel in that area, to upload those map errors?

p.s. My Jag sat nav was equally Censored Edited by DennisN - funny spelling may beat the auto censor, but not me. Don't do it please.

v905.4753 2/2013

The very latest as far as I know, so it was quite a surprise to find so many errors in a relatively small space.

And I rather fancy that everybody else was in the same predicament - Piccadilly doesn't encourage stopping to fiddle about with satnav map change submissions.

Serious sense of humour failure there Dennis!

I shall go elsewhere mate.

No. It wasn't a sense of humour failure. It was good moderation to keep this a family site with no gratuitous swearing. If you prefer sites that allow such behaviour, feel free, but please don't do it here.

I am a London taxi driver and I frequently make map corrections and submit them. However, every time I get a new map I find the errors have not been corrected.
I suspect therefore that is the slowness that Tom Tom takes to include them.

And possibly the fact that as they don't get included, this hacks people off so much that they just don't bother any more.

I have submitted loads that have never been actioned, but just once I submitted one on the website and it got into the next update...

I disagree. Is that allowed?

If you thought that was gratuitous swearing you perhaps need to get out a bit more. It's like being in a school classroom, the moderator attitudes on here are massively condescending.

It was a light hearted tongue in cheek remark from someone who doesn't use this place as a chat room, but seeks to share and receive information that makes life a bit easier to work with.

P.s. Thanks for the information from the young-goat, I'd imagined that map-error reports "stuck" with a bit more frequency.
