    I took a long drive for a work meeting today and was directed the the wrong address by the Model S navigation system. Weirdly, the new address for the company had the coordinates of the company's old address - in a different city. But it was listing the new address.

    I had no idea what was going on and check on my phone with Google moas. Google maps had the new address and new coordinates. I finally got there but was pretty disappointed and late for my meeting.

    Would you mind sharing the address in question? I wonder if this is an isolated incident.

    The address I entered was Harvard Business Publishing, 20 Guest St, Brighton, MA 02135

    The navigation system took me to their old address in 300 N Beacon Street, Watertown, MA 02472

    This sort of thing happens to me about 30% of the time I enter in an address. It used to be about 70% but the map database update last January helped a little. The Nav app has some problems suggest you write an email to Tesla to document it.
