Lake Villa district library

 

I post this because I’ve not come across this type of thing in quite a while.
Do a search on
140 N Munn Rd, Lindenhurst, IL 60046
On Garmin with latest map
You won’t find it.
So Wife got directions off her iPhone and we used that
To route us there.
When we go there, we discovered that the street was seen by Garmin. All the way to that address!!
So Garmin map saw the street all the way to the library, but could not find it via address.

First time I’ve seen that in many a year!

Google Maps shows 140 Munn

Google Maps shows 140 Munn Rd to be just north of Mallrd Ridge Rd. However Garmin Map in Basecamp and Google both show that spot nearby as the 38000 Block of Munn Dr, just north of the the intersection of Mallard Ridge Rd.

So Garmin Maps and Google both show the same numbering of Munn Rd. The spot found by Google Maps is 42.417680, -88.049170. Look at it at Google map to see what I mean. Then right click on the Rd and choose "What's Here" to show the actual street numbers in the area.

Website broken? Word wrap broke..

phranc's post above seems to have a formatting problem as I see it using Chrome. The "Word wrap" is not working and the line(s) of text extends across the screen.

It's a name.

It has just dawned on me. 140 Munn Rd is a NAME, not an address.

Google Map

Go to Google Maps, and search for 140 Munn Rd. It will take you there. But, it's a name, not an address.

It happens sometimes when there's a line with no spaces, like in long URL links. Yet other times, a URL is shortened in the display with a "..." but the full link remains when clicked. I don't know why sometimes they're truncated and other times not.

The problem most often happens with links but a very long line of characters with no spaces (like if you had all 50 states listed as Alaska/Alabama/WestVirginia/Wyoming), it would also cause this.

If you do want to see the full link in the post, hit the "Quote" button as if you were going to reply, copy the full link, then cancel the reply.

Google Earth Pro

found the address. It looks to be possibly a school or a retirement home?

I wasn’t able to make out what you posted.
???

The street sign is labeled “N Munn Rd”

And GPS sees it as Munn Road.

As I look at the saved coordinates now on GPS, Though GPS doesn’t show it, I believe Munn was a cross street across 132. And it had a stoplight

My reason for posting was that ‘address’ could not find it, but map showed the correct street name that went a couple blocks past our destination.

I use Chrome (85.0.4183.102) and don't have issues with long url's:

The url displays in a truncated form but works just fine.

What do you see on phranc's post above on Fri, 09/18/2020 - 6:37am? My Chrome choked on it as others have reported.

I can tell you that the URL

I can tell you that the URL was copy pasted from the address bar at Goggle Maps. Their URLs are always like that. Someone rested it in plain text, the last part wrapped around. I copied the whole URL as posted with the wrapped around text and pasted back to Google nd it worked fine.

I see what I assume is correct

I see the Google Map of 140 Munn Rd. I copied and pasted the url into the search bar and it took me to the correct location. The building is on the west side of Munn Road on the east shore of Crooked Lake. The building is all by itself at that location. I also went to that address in Google Earth and it showed me the exact same thing. And I agree with Melaqueman that it looks like a school.

I was using iPhone 6 Safari,

When I posted, I was using iPhone 6 Safari, so I saw text with no word wrap

Went past it again today
Intersection has stoplight and street goes south as well as north.
Sign says Munn Road at intersection, And a block north on Munn local street sign says North Munn on street sign.
