Do Garmin have a user friendly method of reporting errors such as the fact you can turn right at a junction?

Many Thanks

I have submitted a couple of errors, one quite dangerous and one no right turn error.

It is a shame they have not come up with a better method and perhaps the ability to correct on the device like TT

Personally, I always report mine direct to Navteq and invariably what I'm reporting has already been done on their maps (the source on my Nuvi) so its garmin who are behind

Just to let you know the errors I reported have just been corrected in Garmin's latest map release...

That did not take long Smile
