GPS car location on map slightly ahead from actual location on the road

Just noticed this recently - not sure if it started after a software update or not. The cars actual location showing on the map is slightly off - not sure how far off it is, but for example when I can see a street ahead that I will be turning on to, the red arrow indicating my cars position on the map seems to have already passed the road that is still ahead. Now when I turn on the road the car's location on the map changes to show me correctly on the road but again slightly ahead of where I actually am.

I've reset the MCU once, but that didn't correct the problem.

Anyone else experienced/experiencing this issue?
