It’s tempting to think our technology is fail-safe but we all know that’s not the case. So, why is it so surprising when your GPS delivers incorrect information? Don’t freak out! The device may not be broken; Your mapping software may just be out of date.
To fix the problem it’s a good idea to start with your GPS users’s manual. If that doesn’t help visit support pages provided by the US government or The Department of Homeland Security . You can also report the problem to one of the two major mapping companies: Navteq and Tele Atlas. If your GPS is a TomTom device you may be able to make direct changes to the map using MapShare. Good luck!
