Gracee Arthur is a California real estate agent who spends a lot of time behind the wheel of her 2010 BMW 528i. But while driving through Malibu six months ago, she noticed something strange on the screen of her navigation system: while it got the street name right, it placed her in Calabasas -- a town more than 20 miles away.

Arthur snapped photos of her navigation screen errors and took them to her dealer, Bob Smith BMW of Calabasas. But after several days in the shop, the dealer was unable to fix the problem and advised her to contact Tele Atlas, the vendor that supplies U.S. map data for her BMW navigation system -- which retails for $1,900.
