How do a report a large TomTom error, not just in one location ?

In outback NSW, the Kidman Way (Route 87) is sealed all the way between Cobar & Hillston (255km). TomTom thinks that there is an unsealed road on the route & directs a driver to travel an extra 175km via Nyngan & Tottenham. If a driver ignores the longer route & follows The Kidman Way, at Mt Hope, Tom Tom directs the driver off the bitumen & onto a dangerous unsealed goat track for 2km, then back onto the bitumen. I travel this route regularly. Know that TomTom is wrong & have unsuccessfully tried to report it after every upgrade that still contains the same error.

    You can report it in tomtom mapshare. Just click on the middle of the path of the road with the problem, then put a comment saying the entire stretch of the road has a problem.

    I have found TomTom particularly difficult to contact about this error.
    You are the first human to reply to my efforts to report this error over a few years.
    Thank you. TomTom could do with a bit of human contact !!! Ivan

    Apple Maps appears to have the correct routing, but I'm only going off of overhead images and routing. Can you give coordinates for the detour?
