Online Maps and GPS Devices Suffer from GIGO

Take a look at the map that shows where the Starbucks Corporation thinks its Matawan store is located. How does anyone find anything with the awful data in GPS systems these days? Check out one of my other blogs for articles in March 2009 and October 2008 on the subject. It seems that Mapquest finally corrected some of the bad map locations I mentioned back then, including the one for Sayrebrook Veterinary Hospital in Sayreville. It shouldn't take a year, though, so congratulations aren't necessarily in order. You'll note there is no way to get Starbucks to fix their map.
