Petrol Stations missing on the GO 5200

SO, I've got a new/up to date Go 5200 and I've found that there are several petrol stations near me that have been operational for years and don't appear when I press the Petrol Stations icon in the menu.

Am I doing something wrong ? or
Is the information truly out of date (and therefore worthless to me) ?

If the latter, is there any way I can remove them, as what is shown would be misleading.?

    You can check with the online Map Share Reporter tool whether the petrol stations are in TT's database. You can also use the same tool to submit corrections.

    Well, I've tried that. I can't see anything to show POIs so I assume that petrol stations if present are shown. WHich they aren't, in this case.

    Are you using Chrome as your browser as I am getting something like this90203255-034a-4f43-a02a-e6b0ecf0fb86.jpg
    Where as in Edge I get this546dbdbf-7753-4f05-aa80-8e8da2417a14.jpg

    So it might be an idea to use a different browser, don't forget to log into MapShare Reporter

    Firefox actually (latest). Yes, I was logged in ?

    To be 100% sure I have just tried via Edge. Same result. Nothing. Pretty lame methinks. If TT can't keep petrol stations reasonably up to date it's useless (to me at any rate).

    Can you give an example of where you were looking for a petrol station to view

    If using post codes in MapShare Reporter remember to remove the spaces, also you will only see POIs if you have have selected an action after clicking the POI symbole5fbb1c9-df22-4187-aef3-23d16669dd86.png

    I found DL14 9AE SAINSBURYSb1e24cfd-c901-4116-88df-dbbb0ef7f5b1.jpg
    DL14 9AB TESCOc91428d2-8963-40a5-b05f-60049f9f2b25.jpg
    DL14 7TN MORRISONSa91d6bae-3081-40c5-af8a-fc6a320928b8.jpg
    but DL14 7AB ASDA should be DL14 7LB as is missinge61c00b8-0b1e-497c-a06f-61e725330bb1.jpg

    Hi
    Sorry for the delay in replying, I was away :D

    I've been doing some more experimenting and it seems that the problem is not with the map data but with the way that TT handles it.



    Anyway, thanks @Niall for helping me get to the bottom of this.
