    North America Map Accuracy

    Since getting my tt go 740, I've noticed a problem with POI's and addresses being "off the mark". As an example, if I navigate to my home address, the ending point is actually one house prior to the actual physical location of my home. This seems to be the case for many if not all adresses. Does anyone else have that issue? My buddy has a garmin which seems to be more accurate. Thanks.

    I am using the WM version & my house shows to be one after. These things are not 100% accurate & are only going to get you withing 50-100 feet. If it gets you from point A to point B accurately, then that is what really matters.

    I see your point, but it is disappointing to see other manufactures like Garmin are spot on. Also, if I'm looking for an address and it brings me to the address next door it can get a little confusing. Anyway, just wanted to make sure it was not just my device.

    That's 100% unadulterated bullshyt.

    TomTom's "spot on" ratio is extremly comparable to garmin. Then again.....who gives a flying
