    Well, it's not Cortana's fault. She'd probably work fine if she had the correct addresses to work with...

    I could make location based reminders work by lying to her and telling her the wrong address... but I'm sure that would lead to problems down the road in the ecosystem as a whole.. ****, I might even start believing I actually live at 143 after a while!
    Lol..... Hilarious!!! :-D rofl..

    I'm having a similar problem, but not exactly. I can't get Bing maps to search for an address at all. The addresses come up in the list as I'm typing, but selecting an address causes a cannot find address error. This is on EVERY address. I have all of the states maps I need downloaded. It'll search for, for example, Tennessee Aquarium but not it's address. Here+ finds them just fine. Now, how can I get Cortana to use my Here+ favorites instead of the half-baked in Bing maps data?

    I'm having the same problem with bing maps too, which is very frustrating.

    I have created a post about it

    I just searched for Tennessee Aquarium online it gave me location on bing maps. Just tap on it and it will give you the address. I do not know how you did not get it??

    No, I know that works. What I can't do is search for any address first. Here+ works fine. Just not Bing

    In my case not exactly same issue but in bing maps location of all points like metro station is off by 100 to 150m and bing maps have hence given me wrong directions twice ending nowhere blindly. Surprisingly with same map data Here maps shows everything at correct location with correct direction. Anyone with same issue?

    Ed, when you say you tried to report the issue, did you use the Mapcreator tool on Here Maps? http://mapreporter.navteq.com/

    Just curious. I remember when I first got my Garmin stick-to-your-windshield GPS, my grandmother's house was off in a similar fashion.
