Check the GPS layer, there seems to be a local problem with GPS reception.

:oops: Apologies,...
I'll drive to the sub-division, right away, and manually check the street-names...
I didn't realize you could 'Copyright' a street-name that you didn't name in the 1st-place.
I'll look for the TOS pages before I leave.

I was able to add the roads that you saw.
I used Google Maps :roll: to get the info I was unsure of.

I get a strange feeling of satisfaction when I make useful changes to the maps :geek:

I'm not sure, I'll pay attention the next time I head to Chattanooga.
I'll see about the streets, and add the info I can be sure of.

I see what you're saying. The GPS looks like the cars a slightly more North than the road they are traveling on...
I would think moving this segment slightly North would stop the app from flipping you in the other direction and back.
But, I'm not sure it's such a problem to go threw that much trouble?
It's more like an annoying blip than a re-routing.

Nav acts strange at this location

I'm not sure what is going on here; but when I'm driving SW on this freeway, just as I'm rounding the curve, my map flips & makes the 're-routing' beep. It happens, just for a second, then returns to my direction.
This is the area in issue:

It's like the phone thinks I've jumped over the wall and needs to put me in the other lane, headed NE...
It happens every time I take this route, I can count on it.

Any thoughts?

Another reason to be careful when using commercial map data or even paper maps is you have to watch for their hidden, purposeful mistakes (called map traps).

I've caught one on Bing in my area just from casual browsing. The DeLorme paper atlas of Mississippi has a cute little bear eating a jar of honey drawn out of roads right outside of Tupelo. Tupelo honey, get it? Apparently cartographers have an odd sense of humor. :)
