I am still unable to get an answer as to why for the last 18 months I have been informing TomTom and using mapshare of the fact that a major junction on the M2 in Kent is not as shown and has not been so for what must be at last 2 years.
What is the point of having maps that are not correct and then not heeding the information being given by motorists.
This alteration to the junction 2 is not a temporary measure and the maps should have been amended some time ago. As it is at present drivers wishing to access the M2 eastbound from the A228 at junc 2 are still directed
down what is now a footpath across the bridge.
How can Tomtom ignore such a simple and yet important amendment.

These and all the other “not added” map corrections is the major reason I did not renew my Map update service. So another revenue stream along with their speed cameras TT have lost from me because of their lack of quality.

I figure its better to update once every couple of years as roads normally take this time to be completed and who knows what new satnav device will be out there in that time.

Is the junction not as shown in the online TT route planner? It seems the same on the Google satellite photo, but that could be out of date as well.

Hats off to Navteq however. A couple of major changes around Dundee THIS YEAR are included on their online map TODAY. One was only completed a few months ago.

Am I correct in thinking this is the road/accessway (Cuxton road) that has been removed here?

If it is, it's updated on the Navteq online map.

Come on TA, fuel up your surveying truck and go for a drive every once in a while! Rolling Eyes

falkirk81, the co-ords are...

51.382212 - 0.472475

On Google Earth the 'yellow indicated' roads are the 'very' old on/off from the M2 to A228.

Just over the M2 the 'green indicated' roads are the actual route.

It appears to me when they updated the junction they forgot to remove old junction.

I informed Teleatlas back when I had TomTom, more than a year ago, even the latest iGO maps have it wrong, although Navteq have it right.

I have also informed TT and Teleatlas about this, when I first used TT Navigator 5 with map ver 562 this junction was shown correctly but it reverted to old layout in map ver 605 and has been wrong ever since.
