I doubt it. I'm guessing it is up to the advertiser to provide correct locations.

Perhaps I mis-understood. It was posted after this posting

which I interpreted as meaning the form to report incorrect locations for Dunkin Donuts and other advertisers. You did mention POIs but I didn't make the switch.

In MI when I saw problems with the Taco Bells all over my area being incorrect i found out that that bing had them correct while google had them all wrong locations.. Waze showed them exactly where google showed them.

Bing overlays and google gps plots.. Go figure..

The advertiser (i.e. Taco Bell) provides the location information to Waze.

I found a very misplaced D&D this morning (the address listed is correct, the pin is just off by miles)... The error isn't coming from Bing (or Google, or Yelp, or FourSquare, or YP)... Another had the hours listed incorrectly (Waze said they opened at 5am, but they weren't even close to being open at 5:10am).

This leads me to believe that, as Yonatan said (see my post above), the info (the address, location & hours) came directly from Dunkin & are in a private advertising database and not from the traditional search providers.

Thanks for the help! I have gone over to Bing and submitted a "map correction feedback" submission.
