Windows Maps has also seen an update for Insiders on the Fast Ring taking it to version 5.1611.3191.0.

The update does not bring any major new features, but does let users give a wider range of feedback regarding map issues such as inaccurate maps or poor search results.

The world is changing all the time, and sometimes we don’t get everything right. Maybe a restaurant you wanted to try is now closed forever, or perhaps your new subdivision isn’t in Maps yet. One of our most important sources of information is you, so we’ve added more ways for us to hear you and to make Maps even better.

In this Maps update, you can now tell us if something is wrong with the map itself, such as a missing road or a city name in the wrong language, just by pointing and describing what’s wrong. You can also tell us if search isn’t finding the thing you want, or if search is doing something silly like giving you a hospital in a list of Italian restaurants. If we’ve got the details about a business wrong, such as its location or opening hours, there’s now an easy to way to report that as well. And finally, if we don’t know about the hot new bistro that just opened this afternoon, you can be the first to tell us by adding the business information directly into Maps.

The update, for both mobile and PC, is currently rolling out to Insiders in the Windows Store here.
