    Default Too many errors in the maps in Sygic

    Especially since the latest update of the Sygic Maps in my own home town of 60.000 inhabitants I found 3 errors in Sygic maps and many wrong navigation instructions. The navigation instructions are often completely idiotic, where there is a perfectly good road directly to your goal, Sygic guides you via an unitelligable deviation, sometimes even via unpaved roads! It accurately calculates a longer traveltime for these deviations compared to the accurate route when you change the route in the map?!?! I compared all of these errors with Google Maps where these errors don't occur.
    Do any of you have the same experience? I am beginning to prefer Google Maps navigation to Sygic despite Google's simple interface and it's dependency on the internet when you change roads.
    I communicated this to Sygic, but the only answer you get is that they buy their maps from a respectable mapprovider (TomTom). That of course doesn't change the problem.
    Maybe if there are more complaints Sygic will start listening to it's customers.

    To be clear, Sygic uses the maps from Tele Atlas or Navteq ,And the errors can be reported at NavTeqT here
    Code:

    and TeleAtlas here ,

    And I thought that IGO used the same cards .

    I looked at both Navteq and Tele-Atlas, but at least one of the errors is not present in both their maps but is present in Sygic. So Sygic uses other maps.

    The data that is used in Google Maps comes from Navteq and Tele Atlas, two big cards publishers. They, used data from government agencies, such as the Topographical Service of Land Registry .

    I think that the Sygic software is at fault here rather than the maps used, its easy to blame the maps of course
