Can someone please tell me why Speed Limits so out of date.

I have free lifetime road maps, and every time year I update the Roadmaps and its same, the posted speed limits are wrong again.

Its mainly around where I live, put I suspect it happens elsewhere as well.

Is it possble to get this speed limits fixed ???

The mapping is supplied to Garmin by Sensis (telstra) in Australia, and if the Sensis section is anything like telstra accounts department, don't hold your breath..

You can blame VW for that one then, as the only State in Australia that allows any speed over 110kph is the Northern Territory. Laughing

Yea, it depends on a country. In the UK, France and Germany the posted limits are OK, but in Spain and Greece the roads are rebuilt so frequently, that nothing helps...
