3. Report Map Updates
And lastly, you can help us improve specific areas more quickly by reporting changes and recommending updates here. If you notice a road or address that you believe needs updating, you can report it directly to us. We will verify the information, add it to our maps and distribute it, along with other changes, to everyone through an update within 45 days.
And while we are on the topic of map update requests, one important thing to note. Our office in New Jersey experienced a power outage during the storm that hit the state pretty hard last week. If you submitted a map update request between Saturday, March 13th and Tuesday, March 16th—we ask that you resubmit your request to make sure we received it. We want to be absolutely sure your map update is included in the next monthly maintenance update! Thank you.
