ProNav and getting to Silverstone Circuit

All,
Had the need to goto Silverstone today for Skid Control course (excellent fun - even if it was in Renault Meganes) - anyway, I digress.

For those that know the area ......

The ProNav refused to acknowledge slip road from the A43 to Silverstone entrance (Dadford Rd), instead wanting to take me on a 15 mile extended journey down to Brackley, over to Stowe, and upto the Silverstone Circuit.

I thought this slip was build many years ago?

I didnt have chance to investigate fully - anyone else found this "problem" ?

Not really a problem as I knew exactly where I was and could ignore the instructions on my 2k Sat Nav.

My 99 Tomtom lets you submit 'corrections' and downloads verified corrections from other users for free. Our 2K pro-nav's probably need a new map disk/download for a fee

BMW UK have opened a "Case" on my Sat-Nav problems, they ask anyone with these types of problems to call them.
So give them a ring it will strengthen our case.
Car goes in Wednesday for tests and then it will get the next update.
