I always wondered how corrections get made in GPS mapping, but not enough to do anything about it. My home address appears on the Garmin unit as "West Side Day care."...................
While on a ride recently, we tried to use the City of Barstow, California to force routing over to the two lane we wanted to travel. ( fastest route seems to mean interstate and shortest route has had me in the alley ways of Cleveland)
anyway, it turns out that Garmin (Navteq) has somehow identified two cities of Barstow, California, and the first choice to appear is actually Barstow Ave in Fresno, CA.........
Why do I tell you all this ?
Because this morning I decided I want my home back from the Daycare and I only want one Barstow, CA.......
Link here to send corrections to Navteq for future revisions:
