Maybe your country is covered by Map Maker.

It's in Romania, in Timisoara. The "Pomiculturii" street doesn't show up. It's written "Constantin cel Mare" instead. I don't think Romania is covered by Map Maker...

I tried the TeleAtlas too, the Timisoara map is worse than the Google one and I cannot even get through the first step. I think I tried all the options they propose and nothing gets through. At some point I just don't have the necessary option in order to continue. Isn't there a real person to contact?

When your street is displayed in Google Maps, the only copyright info at the bottom right corner is Google....I think this is from MapMaker.   It does seem like that area can be updated in MapMaker (but it will take a while to migrate over to Google Maps):    http://www.google.com/mapmaker?hl=en&q=45.775231,21.23597&gw=30&ll=45.775231,21.23597&spn=0.002769,0.006073&z=18

Thank you for your answer GMapperHF! The funny thing is that in MapMaker the street's name is correct. So I just clicked on the street and sent a report for misleading information... let's see now if there will be any reaction! :-)
