Hi, I'm trying to get C.T to navigate from 50.839,-2.0281 to 50.8263,-2.0207 but it seems to not understand the junction at 50.8309,-2.0241 correctly. I've tried modifying OSM (with the iD editor) but cannot work out why thearms of the  junction are not all connected.

Can you help, or point me to some reference to help me modify OSM.

Thanks for your help!

It looks like you’ve done everything right! Updating OSM doesn’t instantly reflect on c.t – the process of boiling OSM data down into c.t routing takes a couple of days, and because it involves a noisy and power-hungry server, it’s something I typically run every month or so. I’m due to run an update in the next week so hopefully it’ll show up then.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the reply. I'll check again in a week or so!

Best wishes.
