Link to report Map Errors for Navteq (Map Reporter)

 

If you encounter a map issue(s) on Navteq based Navigation Systems such as Garmin,(i.e. GPS tells you turn right but actual street is one way you cannot make a right) you can report it here.

This will make improvement to the map provider like NAVTEQ in future map releases I believe.

It's not Navteq's error but Garmin's miscoding of the Navteq data.

Please explain

Could you please explain how Garmin's coding, or miscoding, of Navteq's map data could result in a situation like the one the OP refers to.

Wouldn't it be Navteq's map data that has the one way road incorrectly coded thereby allowing the Garmin unit to calculate a route onto it that would be going in the wrong direction?

In any event you can also report errors directly to Garmin at:

My experience has been that going to Navteq is the fastest route for reporting map errors as it cuts out the middleman, in this case Garmin.

Good to know. Thanks.

Navteq

I have notified Navteq about several issues that I have observed over the years; e.g.; state routes numbered incorrectly, etc. I have never seen them correct one problem. I have heard of other people notifying them about something and having it corrected, but I've had no luck with them, even though I've referenced state maps and other resources. Could be the luck of the draw, I suppose. exclaim

Garmin massages all the map data from NavTeq and while the base data from NavTeq may not reflect recent changes by the roads department, not noting a street is one-way because of a missed attribute is often the problem. We know Garmin will not route over reversible lanes or roads that become one-way during peak periods. Since they modify map info, it's very easy to miss an attribute.
