    Hey all,
    First, I'm loving the windows ecosystem. WP 8.1 dp on a 925, Windows 8.1 on desktop, and xboxone. Really excited about the possibilities. My question has to do with the GPS locate and Cortana places. When at home, my address is off by a few houses, when at a place of business, the address is off by a few digits. I wish I could ask "Where am I?", then correct manually if its off, then add to my places.
    It really doesn't inhibit functionality too horribly, but I feel I could do more reminders if I could use addresses from the address book and add addresses from the GPS. Are all GPS phones off target, or is it device or carrier specific. any tips?

    Same here...

    I find this somewhat irritating.
    Like an answer to this myself.

    Map view locations are right on.
    Our actual house address is off by 6 house numbers.

    I want to say this was a built in feature because of fear infused by the government for non-military GPS users.
    Thought that went away some years ago however.

    If you go to here.com and use the Map Creator, you can report this or maybe even change it yourself. I haven't attempted the latter, have reported a couple of things though. Not that anybody will ever actually fix it, but I tried...
