I recently spent a few weeks getting the streets and addresses updated and added to Google Maps for our new community. There is an online process that I tried to use back in January, but it didn't work. I had to work with an expert who in turn forwarded my requests to the Google Maps team. Once we got over an initial hurdle to name the streets correctly, I could then add addresses in their correct locations.
The good news is it seems like Bing may be getting data from Google (or it was propagated through another source) since all the addresses I added show up on Bing when I search. They did not show up a month ago. The problem is they are in the wrong locations. I've tried to go through the online process but nothing is updating and I do not receive any feedback through my account that the changes have been accepted.
I've attached composite screenshots of what both Google and Bing Maps shows. You can see where all of the Bing Maps addresses are off by around 100 feet although there are a few other addresses that are off by much more.
Any assistance is much appreciated as I'm there are businesses and individuals that use Bing Maps to route packages or themselves to our addresses.

Every day I see a new map update on Windows Offline Maps, it looks like they do a lot of work to get all the data processed globally.
It would take a long time when adding new pois to set up it properly, websites, phone, description, location, category and so on...
Wonderful news, it seems that the addresses in your neighbourhood has been published on Bing Maps!!!
Windows Maps has not detected the new changes though it is probably slowly rolling out to everyone :)
Have a wonderful day!

That's wonderful news Michael!
Yes, Google maps are getting updates around the clock, though other providers will take time to fully implement it into the maps, then pass it to the companies that license it such as Bing, as well as make it all work offline too.
As well, integrate into the systems the UPS, FedEx.. uses :)
have a wonderful day!

Hi Michael, most of the map updates I have sent to TomTom are coming very nicely and all the missing stuff has been added to Bing, within a month all reports should be all up to date on the Map :)
It seems the Bing Maps team is working hard with new feedback options, I seen some places where it says this place has been reported by many as non-exist confirm, also new UI for feedback, you can upload photos for the business and so much more :) So exciting
have a wonderful day!
@IoTGirl Everything is settled now, thank you

Hi Michal, I found this on the map reporter, it seems there is some places they are getting their data from, do look into it. Also, it is aginst Google's Term and Service to copy their data to make a competitor product.
