Anything to keep your windmill alive.

GPS Speed limit corrections - central database ?

I travel up/down east coast (i-95,i-77,i-81,i-75) and see a lot of errors between POSTED limits and GPS info. Is there a central system for that , or would each mfr need to correct ?
I submitted a few to Garmin and HERE, but no way I can detail ALL the errors that i see.

Brueggers poi file

I have just attempted to update the Bruegger's file. Unfortunately it just can't be done from their web site.
They have gone to a map view which you need to minimize to get a State, then maximize to find a city. Click on the "BB" and you will get a location. Then you need to back out of it and try again on another location. Not very easy to update a list.
