Montour County GIS staff provided new address databases to commercial providers for GPS purposes in August. Staff reached out again in early December for an update. Responses on timetables for implementation by the providers follow:
Google (used in Google Maps) specified that they “were unable to provide any visibility into their data import process. In general, it takes several weeks or months before we can use the submitted data for updates.”
HERE (used in GPS units such as Garmin/Tom-tom, and most car navigation systems, FedEx, UPS, Amazon, Bing, etc.) said that it would take four weeks and they were back-logged. At this rate, an estimated date was calculated between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
MapQuest (used on MapQuest.com website) said that it would be 6-9 months.
