New roads not in GPS

 

Does anyone know who is responsible for adding a new road/subdivision to the GPS world? I thought the county or state DOT would be responsible but when I contacted the county they said no. When I asked who was responsible they didn't know. Catch 22.

Navteq

Navteq provides the maps to Garmin. Errors can be reported directly to Navteq, Here:

Be prepared to wait awhile for any results, however. Users here have reported waiting several years to see their changes made.

This is More Than Just and Error report

Gary A seems to be talking about a whole subdivision. This is more than reporting a simple error and I ran into something similar. My municipality also did not report to Navteq.

I don't think it's done by elves, so I'm also somewhat perplexed.

I would like to suggest that Gary A, contact Navteq and see if they will tell him.

All roads get updated (even new subdivisions). It makes me (all of us) feel better to report to Navteq, even though the delays are so long it appears we are being ignored. Be patient (like for a year or two) and the updates will come

I have seen the future and it is now!

Now a days, GPS

Now a days, GPS manufacturers are not only using the time tested NAVTEQ but also the TELEATLAS. So I feel we should report the new roads to both of them.

Just my 2 cents.

Something new subdivision buyers dont think about

I guess not being on your GPS is not an issue. It must make truck deliveries interesting!

Why does Navteq take forever?

Why does google maps consistently out perform (new streets... etc) at least here in my neck of So.Calif over Navteq ...I have at least 70 changes/new streets in at Navteq Map reporter for the past 2 yrs none of which are in Navteq but, there all in google maps...

Google Maps Even Better Overseas

I have no idea how Google does it either, but outside the United States their maps can be more accurate than the local government cartographer's maps. They must pay a bunch of locals to do the work.

Google Street View

Where do you think Google gets these "Street Views"? They have hire people to drive around your city looking for new streets.

Telenav and Teleatlas gets the updates then they wait to see how many others submit then they someone out to verify then it gets put into "beta" map then they send someone out with the "beta" map to test it. Then if there are any corrections needed the start again with another "beta" map. This may not be how it goes, it is just a theory.

In this day and age we expect instant satisfaction to everything. Not everything works instantly.

Again the first two paragraphs are just theory.

New Subdivision

I also live in a fairly new subdivision. It took them 2 years before the roads to the subdivision were updated.

Roads not in GPS

You might do a comparison with this source:

It relies on volunteers to keep a world map up to date and has great success. Whether you can stake your life in the map's accuracy is something I can't gauge. However, I checked my own semi-rural neighborhood and was favorably impressed.

OSM had detailed mapping of Haiti within days of the initial earthquake due to volunteers analyzing fresh satellite imagery.

Open Architecture GPS

I feel that if you are depending on SOMEONE ELSE to do something - like update map details - you are dependent on THEIR schedule. As a result, something that is important to you may not be as important to NavTeq or Garmin.

You either live with the consequences of waiting for someone else or you take action... The open architecture of OMS sounds like a more responsive approach but it depends on a broad network of individuals to bevery active. Something like the POI Factory laugh out loud !

Garmin should acquire a company that's in the mapping business

But...don't you think it should be in Garmin's best interest to provide accurate and quickly updated mapping? You know - Garmin is in the business of selling products to consumers that desire accurate and quickly updated mapping. Maybe Garmin should acquire a company that's in the mapping business. Or have they already done that?

I've been editing errors in OSM, adding streets, names and POIs for at least a couple of months now. However I was told the data I input cannot be based on some other map, so I can't just look at Google Maps or any other published map and copy stuff over. There's one set of major highway interchanges near my home that's way out of date in OSM, and that I've been dying to fix. The only "legal" way I can think of me fixing it is to drive over every combination of ramps and upload my GPSr tracks to OSM for tracing.

It does Take Time

I too moved to a sub-division that was not on the Garmin maps. The sub-division was already five years old but not all completed. Seven years into the development my street was added and now TEN years later the final phase has joined the map.

Somehow I always found my way home. Cheers

Are the ramps show in the Yahoo aerial imagery layer? You should be able to just trace them.

The Yahoo! image layer is also out of date. I wonder if the image will ever get updated, or if that's a fixed snapshot of the Yahoo! aerial database.
