    Default Lakes, Rivers Missing from Map of India

    Hello,
    I recently purchased a lifetime license of Sygic which comes with TomTom maps, and these are some of the most detailed I have seen yet! However some very major water bodies are missing from the map of India, which is really strange because an ATM which opened up some time back near my place shows just fine.

    For instance, there is a large water area just south of the town of Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh called the Bargi Dam Reservoir which isn't there, neither is the river Narmada, which is a very major geographical feature (see screenshots).

    Similarly, Bhimtal and Sattal lakes in Utarrakhand, both of which are very popular tourist destinations are missing as well.

    I have looked up the locations on Google Maps, Maps.Me and Here, all of which have accurately detailed the water bodies. I have also tried to report this to TomTom using [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] but it turns out India is not on the list of countries where errors can be reported.

    This of course makes me think what else could be missing from the map.

    I am attaching some screenshots I took of Google Maps, Sygic and Here. Of the 3, Sygic with its TomTom maps does not show either the river Narmada, or Bargi dam reservoir. For an app which goes for 40 euros, you'd think it would at least be more detailed than free maps!

    Thanks!

    If you look closer you can see that what is missing is there.

    What is missing is the blue color of the water.

    You need to contact Sygic.

    Indeed, the features are visible. However, the catchment area is nowhere to be seen on TomTom's mapshare either.

    @ jonpreston,

    You need to contact Sygic about this.

    They are the ones who buy the maps to be used.


    Plus someone over at the tomtom forum gave you info about the map.

    With TomTom map of India you can see the blue water.

    Quoted by the user:

    "Yes, part of the river is present in the current 945 maps and the reservoir is part of the updates for the 950 maps. "
