Error in Google Maps

Recommended Posts

When you search for our postcode in Google maps, it brings up a point a little over a mile away on open moorland. I've reported this to Google, no response. I've tweeted them, got a reply asking for the details, then no response, despite chasing up. 

We have a caravan site and holiday let, and it's causing issues with visitors to our businesses getting lost. Any ideas on how to get Google to correct their records?

I’m not sure if this is missing the point but I’ll suggest it anyway. When you’re sat at home go onto google maps and press the dot that is where you are that should then give you the actual postcode for your address.

Obviously, because Gazza77 doesn't know his own postcode for his home & business. 🤪

Is it just google? Where do SatNavs send people looking for your postcode?

That's true. One of the street views shows me walking down the road whereas in reality I'm sitting here writing this.

Are you certain, I bet if you went and checked you'd be there in the street.

I thin you've got the wrong end of the stick. It's when using Google maps as satnav is where the issue is, as the wrong directions are provided.

Only based on my own satnavs, but the correct place.
