Why does Map Share community participation only work with a map up to a year old?
The road network develops at such a fast pace that, after four quarterly map releases (a year's worth), a large number of structural changes will have fundamentally altered the maps themselves.
So, making corrections on older maps does not give the community the best of Map Share. For example, imagine if a new road is built in your neighbourhood. If that road is not on your TomTom map, you will not be able to make a change to it on your device. Now you can see that with over two million users in the Map Share community, the use of recent maps is very important.
The power of the community lies in users having a recent map and naturally the most up-to-date version is the ideal place to start.
