I have only played with reporting issue on a PC once and that was in my edit area. Left click in the area on live map you want to report, should get a ballon with origin and destination and report error at bottom.

Editor issue. Somewhere there is a road or landmark with an improper city name. If you have the highlight script, it makes it easy to find.

That would include train stations, bus stations, airports, public parking lots (not business parking lots), hotels, car repair locations, amusement parks & sports/concert venues, gas stations, schools/universities, car rental locations, ALL 24hr hospitals and EMS/Fire/Police stations. As for mapping businesses, I would map businesses that are in large buildings. IE: Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Target... Pretty much any grocery store & big shopping malls like Mall of America for example.
Public Parking is already covered directly in the app without need of a landmark. Hotels, repair, rental, Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Target, grocery stores, etc are all revenue streams and just add clutter.

So, the guideline not to snap them to a road is a valid one.
Well this is somewhat annoying as it means PLot segments are needed to prevent pollution from gas stations, convenience stores, coffee shops, and drive thrus.

Seems ok to me. The PLot landmark was added Jan 12th and is live. There's currently automatic "heavy traffic" being reported (the road is red) on "Av. Santos Dumont".

This does differ from testing preformed previously on NA, so perhaps this is yet another example of the separate infrastructures working unintentionally different.

suppress traffic != suppress map problems


Landmarks prevent map problems to appear "under" the polygons. all except restricted turns and route frequently not taken.

Hi Jason,

Landmarks do not suppress traffic jams.
We do [have] plans to use this feature, but we didn't try it live yet.
