    Going to Cartagena, Columbia and got the app to look for restaurants, hotels etc. But the street names are totally different then google or apple maps. So when I search for an address the app won’t find it (almost every time) one example: Centro, Calle del Torno # 39 – 76, Cartagena, Colombia (this is the address of a well known restaurant El Santisimo). This has happened many times with all sorts of addresses.

    Dear MG,

    PE is “just” a renderer, which display openstreetmap data in sophisticated way. PE does not have own geographic information.
    To find out if it’s a data problem of Openstreetmap, or a rendering problem of PocketEarth, please go to http://www.openstreetmap.org and check the data there. If I search for “Calle del torno, Cartagena, Colombia” I do not get any results, thus thinking that this street does not exist in OSM. (But I’m not sure about which Cartagena you’re talking).
    OSM is a OpenSource Project with nearly 1 Mio. People contributing to the map. If you are somewhere where the map is inaccurate or incomplete, please modify the map and contribute. Thanks!
