Nokia Drive for Windows Phone destinations consistantly off...

After using Nokia Drive a few times I have found that I cannot trust Nokia Drive to accurately locate the final destination.  It has been a block off twice and had another destination on the wrong side of the highway from its actual location.  (I am using business adresses to locate my destination in Nokia Drive.)

 

Do I need to report these inaccuracies to get these destinations corrected, or is Nokia still in the process of updating address locations in the US?

Hi Paul,

I have the same behavior in Maps and Drive for Nokia N8 - and on http://maps.nokia.com/ for Denmark:

Navigation to a business name takes me to a street nearest a more or less accurate GPS(?) location of the business, not to the proper street address.

 

It has been like this for a long time. Now we have both reported it here! :smileyfrustrated:

 

On the map screenshot below, the navigation to "Livretten" ends at Vestre Bakkevej.

Thanks for the reply Hans. 

 

That is what I am finding.  Nokia Drive is consistantly off by a block or two from the actual address.  I hope a Nokia representitive will address this problem soon!
