Okay I have to share this one, it's not a Jolly User it's a mind boggling error by Bing.
Here is the UR:
Type: Incorrect address
Description: the search result for 1250 E 200 S Lehi UT is incorrect. The actual address resides about 2 miles North East of this result.

This is in Utah where all addresses are on a cartesian grid system and thus very difficult to get wrong, so I plug the address given into Bing to see why we got the bad results, and.... Bing pops out the search results pointing to roughly where the user made the report from, 1250 S 200 E Lehi UT. Bing actually swapped the cardinal direction components of the address.
Bing search results linky
Google search results linky

Wow, and why is Waze using Bing again?

Yea, but I don't think this problem is a gps issue, it's Bing somehow choosing to transpose coordinates. after all Google got it right, if it was just bad GPS data Google would also be wrong.

Type: General error
Description: I am *in* the IKEA right now. Map says I'm supposed to go across an ocean of parking lot to go to the wrong building.

Perhaps the GPS isn't as accurate inside as he thinks it is?

Well the error is quite obvious there. He was actually three rows forward from where it plotted him.

All reported from a Hotel Room just north of Bryce Canyon National Park
Description: Captiol Reef National Park not portrayed correctly.

About 110 miles away to the Northeast.
Description: Zion National Park not portrayed correctly.

Again about 80 miles the other way.
Description: Red Canyon not found.

The only Red Canyon I know of is in north eastern Utah a good 350+ miles away up near Flaming Gorge Reservoir.

And the Two park landmarks are actually fairly accurate to the boundaries, I was just working in Zion yesterday, and Capitol Reef was fine a couple months ago when I went through there cleaning up the access roads.

Update Request: Wrong driving direction
directions to Walmart in Three Rivers were completely wrong. took me on a wild goose chase 6 miles outside of Three Rivers and said u've arrived at your destination in the middle of nowhere.

Not sure WHAT to do about that one!


Um that's almost always a Bing plotting error. Go search the location in Bing and make an update request. Usually they get fixed after a while.
