Yesterday I was navigating through my city and tt wanted to send me to a closed road (road works). I report it by mapshare because due this roadwork a near street is changed temporarily drive direction also. I see this is not on any map already. I know it take some days before you see changes on the livemap and in the apps.
So is there a tool or a way we can report such things that this will be faster processed?
Maybe such reports can be taken in HD traffic (on the fly).

    Hi @rabero1985 , I will ask if there is such tool, but I think there is no such tool available to the public :(
    I will get back to you if I get more info.

    Back in 2004 when I bought my first TomTom navigation device it had the facility for a user to close roads and edit restrictions such as turns and one-ways on their maps. We could use those settings locally and also publish them and share them with other users. We have regressed a long way.

    Indeed now you said this, I remember it also. You even had daily updates with the one they had integrated wifi

    Agree with comments about reporting local closures. I have been waiting some weeks now for update which will include the closed roads I have notified. I remember when it could be done on the device, very convenient, and this is quite a loss to have to wait so long. (GO 5000)

    Yes and if I remember.correct you had the choice with mapshare updates from all users or only tomtom verified.

    I discovered the other day under road

    Not sure what the purpose of this is. The label of that part is rather unclear and apparently not translated in other languages.

    Some explanation on the purpose and use would be nice

    I think we could mention about this here: https://discussions.tomtom.com/en/categories/map-quality

    As said before, posting something in that subforum is useless. TT people don't even bother to answer over there and thus get any decent answer.
