|Google gives wrong directions||Kinoyogi||9/12/09 1:50 AM|
I used to rely on google maps and directions but twice in a row - it has given me incorrect directions that got me lost. I have just checked another place with Mapquest and Yahoo maps - which give the same directions but the Google directions to this location are incorrect.
I feel that I can no longer trust Google maps. I would think that such a reputable company would maintain better quality assurance.

Agree, in one occasion the driving direction is obviously North but Google asked me to follow South. I used my common sense and drove North and reached the destination. It would be a entirely wrong direction if I've followed Google's advice. And yes I think Google should take this as a constructive complaint and improve on this, since I still likes to use Google map over other sites.

You can now fix directions, see http://google-latlong.blogspot.com/2009/10/your-world-your-map.html on how.

For my work I have to do a lot of road traveling and am very dependent on a capable directions system. I am a fan of google in general; however when it comes to getting car directions via google maps this system has gotten me lost now three times in a row. I'm done with google maps because professionally I cannot rely on them and most importantly I cannot afford to be late, wondering into gas stations asking for directions at the last minute. Yahoo has been good, thanks you for the reccomendation....get it together google!

Agree 100%. Lately I've been taken to the wrong location. When I use Yahoo Maps via the browser it's correct.

Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it. We are always working to improve the Maps experience. If you do come across incorrect directions, the best way to fix it is to use the "Report a problem" link at the bottom of the directions.
