    Apple is not in the business for updating maps. Are you sure you have good GPS service? Are you using cell tower triangulation?

    Try another app to see if you get the same results.

    The Maps app is powered by Google Maps, I always download Mapquest and a few others as well since Google maps isn't always 100% accurate.

    Some of GoogleMaps results do not place the pin in the correct spot. I always call to verify the street and location.

    One thing I miss from the Droid is the street view I used to verify it.

    +1 for Mapquest. I relied on it a couple of times last weekend when shuttling a bunch of guests around Dallas. It worked like a charm and saved my butt. :D
