Sorry that I can't post proper links yet but if you remove the spaces I added, you can then view the maps. Do you see M5 running north at the bottom center of first map? Do you see how it ends at 14 mile road? M5 goes 2 miles further north to end at Pontiac Trail and has been that way for as long as I can remember, or at least for 5 years now. M5 is an 8 lane divided highway in this part of the map. How old are the GasBuddy maps? wow.
One may argue that it doesn't matter because GB is not used for navigation. However, sometimes I do use it for navigating because it's a lot easier than trying to load things into my GPS. I have to wonder how many more roads are missing? Luckily I usually use GB on my android which integrates with the google maps api so everything is updated there. But obviously the website is wrong, and I don't know about the other smart phone apps besides android.
