Can you imagine driving MB on new road, while the screen is showing you on the old road 1/2 mile away?
OK, I did not consider it an error if the map data is not fully up-to-date. It cannot include roads that have been built and planned before the data was released (my map disk covers some roads that are being built, if does not direct you to those roads though).

I could think of calling it an error when a missing road has existed "long enough" before the map data was released. Again, I don't have experience from my neighbourhood but I remember some UK members talking about some well known roads missing quite some time, which is amazing. This however should not be an MB specific case but should concern all devices that use the same map data supplier.

Mapping errors come from government database, updates are probably software supplier issue but it is MB specific, that is forcing the display to show your position on the road several hundreds feet away, giving you false readouts.
