Hi Kathleen, here's the screen capture. Sadly the marketplace section is 
crashing the app at the moment and i can't pintpoint other. but the one 
i send is pretty much shows this situation that was reported one year 
ago is still on going. Actions speaks louder than words.


obviously i can't check every single map, but this serves as an example 
of how serious facebook takes us and the community feedback.

Here's the same location at HERE (no cablecar, no islet, different 
coastline) https://wego.here.com/?map=32.64412,-16.90614,16,public_transport

and at OSM https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/32.6450/-16.9074

Islet history: https://pewu.github.io/osm-history/#/way/165511735

If this is not misleading and or license violation i don't know what it 
it. And again, this was reported 365 days ago. plenty of time to fix.
