    Not wishing to be a miserable old git but how does anyone go on about getting the map improved?
    For instance, the Sainsbury's just off J25 M5 @ Taunton and surely there has to be a Supermarket just off the M4 twixt Bristol and London.

    Sainsburys but you have to go down the M32 a bit to get to it. Diesel was 1.32 a litre two weeks ago.

    Contact the author by leaving a comment on the map.. the comment button is under the map description ...

    alternatively , start from scratch, generate a new map using the existing POIs as a start.. you could also share the work by having a named collaborator.. or even leave it 'open collaboration', but you run the risk of bad info being added .. this will be the reason the the author of the existing map has kept it 'closed'

    I've had Asda and other supermarkets installed as POIs for a number of years even got Asda theme tune which comes up with it. Other supermarkets are available but they are only competitive if there is an Asda close by. The theme tune brings a smile to the faces of passengers anyway.

    Contact the author by leaving a comment on the map.. the comment button is under the map description ... or make a new map of your own .. but it's a thankless task making Google maps and no matter how good, it's never complete..
