Routes.TomTom.Com #fail Sassenheim and Aankomstpassage Schiphol

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/03/11

Routes.TomTom.com is having Alzheimer.

It used to understand these addresses fine (in fact I copied them from my history):

  • Aankomstpassage Schiphol, Haarlemmermeer, NL
  • Gouverneurlaan 1, Sassenheim

Even though both addreses are clearly visible on their maps, currently it makes this out of them:

  • Multi-Vlaai Schiphol, Schiphol, Haarlemmermeer, NL
    Airtrade Holland Schiphol, Schiphol, Haarlemmermeer, NL
    Per Tutti Schiphol, Schiphol, Haarlemmermeer, NL
    Rabobank Luchthaven Schiphol, Schiphol, Haarlemmermeer, NL
    Rabobank Luchthaven Schiphol, Schiphol, Haarlemmermeer, NL
  • Sanem, Luxemburg

The latter is a silent one: it keeps the address info, but routes you about 350 kilometers in the wrong direction.

You have to work around it by manually including the country:

  • Gouverneurlaan 1, Sassenheim, Nederland

Regression testing, anyone?

  1. “oh dear” and indeed a case of no/failed regression tests.
    Seems very important for this kind of app.
