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, delivery vans or taxis cannot find your address, it is usually due to errors in the directions and not to errors in our maps. You then need to contact the company that manufactured the navigation system.

How to correct the errors in the navigator

Error reports are preferably made online on the respective manufacturer's website.
