Problems with GPS driving directions

Lantmäteriet produces maps but no driving directions. Did you find an error in your navigator, or do you think you found an error in the map?

If you experience that for example courier cars or taxis do not find your address, it is usually due to errors in the driving directions and not due to errors in our maps. You will then need to contact the company that manufactured the navigation system.

How to correct incorrect driving directions in the navigator

Error reports are best made made online on the website of the manufacturer in question.
In some cases, registration/logging in is required to report the errors.

Which roads are shown in the maps from Lantmäteriet?

Lantmäteriet reports all roads that are longer than 50 meters.
Individual roads of the type "worse road" and "car road" are added by Lantmäteriet themselves by interpretation of the changes we see in scale-correct aerial images, so-called orthophotos, in scale 1:2 500.

Road information from the municipalites and the Swedish Transport Administration – public roads, that is – are collected in NVDB, a database of the Swedish Transport Administration. Lantmäteriet receives monthly updates of roads from NVDB.

Updating of Lantmäteriet's maps

If a road or other geometry should be added or changed in Lantmäteriet 's map, it can be reported via Improve the Map (in Swedish, new window).

NOTE – Changes to our maps do not affect the driving directions.
