Ditto, yesterday I got an UR saying an intersection was now a roundabout, went and looked and no roundabout at that intersection, not even in the GPS tracks. Did some research and found out that yes the city did just build a round-about there. And it opened a couple weeks ago. So I go back into the editor, turn on the gps layer again to help me align the new circle, and no tracks at all that would indicate a roundabout.

So I guesstimated and will hopefully remember to check again in a couple months to refine it. And this thread tells me I can expect Map Problem reports for months to come on this intersection.

Get rid of the missing road map problems. 9 our of 10 are bogus.


I'm sure that's true in many areas that are closely monitored, but I've been working recently on some areas (suburban Philadelphia) where at least half of them are legitimate. And not all of them are new subdivisions either: particularly in central New Jersey, a fair number of them are roads that appear to have been around for a while but simply aren't on the map. (None of which is particularly relevant, but I wouldn't want to see these reports go away.)

True, I run across enough legitimate ones that I'm not ready to phase them out entirely, but (and I'm not a coder so I don't know how difficult this would be) it would be nice if they could at least program to recognize the typical loop of a car going through a gas station or bank/restaurant drive through. That would eliminate a large percentage of the bogus ones.
