    I've noticed that many turn restrictions are not visible in Mapshare view. Mapshare will show a blue (unblocked) arrow for the turn, even if the restriction exists. The only way to know the restriction is there is to plan a route that would use the restriction, and see Tomtom take a huge roundabout path avoiding it.

    I would expect that mapshare would show all turn restrictions in the "edit turn restrcition" view, similar to how it always shows when a road is considered blocked or 1-way.

    The vast majority of the restrictions I found are accurate. I suspect these are restrictions from the base Teleatlas map, and the restrictions that show in mapshare are from other mapshare users.

    However, when the hidden restriction is an error, correcting it is unintuitive in mapshare. You have to go into mapshare and block the turn (I don't share at this step), exit mapshare, then go back into mapshare and unblock the turn.

    Examples include:
    - Great Plain Ave westbound in Needham, MA - turning left onto Dedham Ave (correct restriction)
    - Boylston St eastbound in Brookline, MA - turning right onto Lee St (incorrect restriction)

    Funny timing - this was fixed in app 8.350
