My address cannot be found or shows in the wrong place in mapping websites or my GPS Unit. What can I do to correct the mapping information?
Many websites are now available to search for an address and its approximate location is placed on a map. Driving directions from one location to another can also be obtained from these websites. The data that powers these websites sometimes comes from a third party vendor and is updated according to meet their standards and timeline. We do not know when or how often their data is updated.
