Fair question. Definitely used HERE WeGo on our Android tablet to get the directions – even downloaded the latest version of the app to take the screen shots and make sure it wasn’t a known fixed fault that was causing the discrepancy. Then used Map Creator on both Windows 10 laptop and Android tablet to confirm that the 75 yard stretch of road immediately before the A698 was unnamed. Google call parts of the unamed road 68 because it is a cycle route.

The reason that I checked the route on HERE WeGo was because the Mazda installed HERE sat nav in our car didn’t know about the junction of the unnamed roads from Horncliffe and Norham and just told us to turn left on to the A698, Traffic on the unnamed road from Horncliffe has to give way (road markings and traffic signs) to traffic on the unnamed road from Norham to the A698. I know that Mazda are responsible for the voice commands and that there is a time delay before HERE map updates appear on the car sat nav. We are using the latest Mazda supplied version of the HERE maps downloaded in August 2017.

I can see no way in HERE Map Creator of checking traffic priorities (road markings and signs which tell drivers to stop or give way) at road junctions. Is this information held and can it be checked by non-HERE staff?
