Hi,

I have searched the internet for a while now and haven't come up with anything, but thought i'd post here as a last resort. Basically, there is an error in the UK tomtom6 map i am using whereby it beleives it is possible to turn from a dual carraigeway onto a bridge going over the dual carraigeway.

The problem is that this error is very close to my home, so maybe 80% of routes it plans is incorrect because of this error, so it is really frustrating me!

Is there any way I can remove this junction entry from my map data??

I'm afraid not. The only course open to you at the moment is to Report the Error to TeleAtlas and/or TomTom. You'll have to Login first with TomTom.

Thanks for the reply. I reported the problem to TomTom over a week ago on their site, but haven't even had a response! I expect they get these reports all the time, but it would be nice for them to let me know whats happening.

If only errors could be corrected. Although I seem to remember a site where you could download POIs for positions where the mapping was incorrect, so although not corrected, at least you knew it was wrong.

As far as corrections are concerned, unfortunately you have to buy a subsequent release and hope that it has been included (not always the case).

Yeah, I thought that might be the case. Bring on Tom Tom Navigator 7 then!

Even then it's no guarantee that it will be corrected as it usually takes 18 months or so for changes to be made and show in new maps
