I would like to report a problem...
I just downloaded Galileo Offline Maps to my iPad. I then checked the area where I live to check what was included, etc. I found an error immediately. I live in the mountains of North Carolina, just north of the town of Boone. To get to my house at 165 Pace-Clark Rd. from Boone, I go north from US 421 on NC 194 (OK). Then I turn left on Howard's Creek Rd. (OK). Then I turn right on Grady Winkler Rd. (NOT OK). The map shows "Howards Rd.", which doesn't exist at all, instead of Grady Winkler. Please correct. Finally, I turn off Grady Winkler onto Pace-Clark Rd., which is on the map. It's the connecting road, Grady Winkler, which should replace the nonexistent "Howards Rd."

In other words (another user's idea)

How can an error (e.g., street name) be corrected?

I found an error in the name of a street I use regularly. How can it be corrected?

OpenStreetMap is a free editable map of the whole world. It is made by people like you.
It allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative way from anywhere on Earth.
So you can report any discovered error yourself at http://openstreetbugs.schokokeks.org

Just leave a short message on the map if something is missing or obviously wrong, like "oneway in wrong direction" or "bridge or level_crossing?".

Hi Ann,
with your discription I corrected the name from "Howards Rd" to "Grady Winkler Rd". Hope it is ok.
@Yulia
Using the iPad it is not possible, to use schokokeks and also using podlatch on the iPad is noct possible (no flash allowed on iPad)
