Google Maps Errors
Check out the Google Maps location for Birkenhead Lake PP. 50km away from the correct location and at least 2 hours of driving time!
Met someone this weekend who had followed the incorrect directions from Google Maps and was more than a bit perplexed.
I'm a nice guy so I just went through the rigmarole to submit a correction to NAVTEQ, the third-party supplier that provides google Maps with their data. But still, it makes me wonder how many other errors there are out there.
I have heard that there is a one-way lane in England that was having large transport trucks directed down it the wrong way as a result of a directions error in Google Maps...
