My current location is wrong!

Showing my current location as 120 miles from my actual location, it is really irritating, since I would love my map center to start in my town, not far away.
You should make it so we can manually move or reprogram our true city locale, only by clicking a button typing a city or by moving the location point on my map.

        Map location for Cherokee Barber Shop in Tulsa, OK is incorrect... address showing correct as 11115 E 21st St, Tulsa, OK 74129, but shows on the map as 1 mile south... please correct this.

        Yahoo maps is such a cluster !!!!. Having the current location 200 miles away is the most annoying part of it. Why can we not set our start or current location. What a mess.
        Things are getting real bad with Yahoo since now I have to log into Yahoo every time I turn around.
        Yahoo surely you can do better and if not fire your staff and hire people who can.

        Mountain Road belongs and the bulk of the addresses are incorrect. We live at 2850 Mitten Mountain Road and you have us listed as 2870 Solterra Lane. I have brought this to your attention many times with no results. We always have to tell friends to use Google maps for directions as they have it shown correctly.

        I have the same request....please give the ability to enter once a default location as the start point, which I would enter my exact physical address once and it would default to that every time I opened Maps. If for some reason I want to use a different starting point then I obviously would have to enter that address, but would like for it to be retained (at least the 5 most recent) in the drop down box. Thanks for getting this DONE.

        My location defaults almost 30 minutes away also. I was just looking on how to mark my house as my starting point. I guess that is not an option yet. Rats!

        Mine is wrong also, plus, it varies. I do not own a cell phone, so that can't be the issue. I agree, it is VERY irritating.

        HELP! HELP! HELP!

        Any map marker or entry showing ALPHA Audiology at 1047 Jenks is incorrect. We moved!

        We moved from 1047 Jenks Avenue, Panama City, FL in February. Please delete that entry. I’ve tried.

        SINCE FEBRUARY 2013:
        ALPHA Audiology’s is 203-C North Highway 79, Panama City Beach, FL 32413. Feel free to check our web site www.alpha-audiology.com or call us at 850-588-5460 or 763-7707. Thanks. I'm one of the owners, T-Bob Taylor, Practice Manager.

        0841 SW Gaines Street, Portland, OR, is next to the Willamette River, rather than in the West Hills. The zero in the address apparently does not calculate, and it must. I can get a nearby location within one block of our home, if I enter 0841 SW Pennoyer Street, Portland, OR.

        Would you please allow people to move the location of our home especially for rural areas. Your map is closer than most but is still off and causes people problems finding us. You would also need to have people who work for you that would verify the location or ask the appropriate US Post office.

        Your current location feature is horrendous. Yahoo maps used to be very user friendly, you have made it user hostile. I go to google maps now. You have seen the comments why don't you do something about it!!!!!!!

        My current location should be 1739 Silvertree Dr, San Jose, CA 95131, not Hayward, CA
