I was browsing the Telecom website and saw this hotspot --> http://www.telecom.co.nz/content/0,8748,204173-1359,00.html?region=Auckland&city=&type=&suburb=New%20Lynn
The "Show on map" Button takes me here --> http://www.yp.co.nz/Pages/Map/0,2876,a6001_d7209339_m0,00.html?businessName=Starbucks+Coffee&category=&mapKeyword=starbucks&location=New+Zealand#top
Looking closely --> Hey this is about 2 streets away from me and as far as I'm aware there is no mall next to my street.....
Further research shows me that Lynmall is at 3058 Great North Road and according to http://www.smaps.co.nz/ ; 3058 Great North Road is here http://www.smaps.co.nz/nz/waitakere/new+lynn+north/great+north+road/3058/ - which is some distance away from what Yellowpages had indicated where Lynmall hotspot was.
Resolution? The street number mapping layer on Yellowpages' new mapping toy isn't accurate and needs to be corrected.
