Conflict between Sat nav and route planners

  VNAM75 00:04 11 Sep 2008

I need to get to the essex area and I've been given different directions by the sat nav and RAC/AA/BBC websites.

The sat nav has identified an exit road, B1038, on the M11 southbound after J9 but the route planners don't state it. The sat nav map is 3 years old but the road is shown on multi map.

I just need to know if you can exit the M11 southbound on the B1308. Any help appreciated.

Confusing isn't it.
Highways agency shows junctions 8 and 8a being next to each other at Stansted. Google maps shows 8a as a small entry/exit on the B1038 at Newport. I think you'll need some local knowledge on this one.

I don't think so

M11 Jn10 - A505 to the island - turn right A1301 - left onto B1383 Great Chesterford - Littleby - Newport - Stansted Mountfitchet - A120 to airport,

is a route I've used a couple of times (both ways) when the M11 has been blocked between 10 and 8

Thanks for the replies. The sat nav identified the B1038 (after J9) correctly, but incorrectly identified it as an exit route off the M11.

Fruit Bat, your route is the correct one.

I checked the B1308 on google earth:

Heading southbound from the top of the photo, you can see the slip road. It does look a bit narrow and too sharp a bend to turn in to at 70mph! I phoned the highways agency and they weren't completely sure but said it looks like it runs above the M11 when she checked her atlas(??)

"The sat nav identified the B1038 (after J9)"

should be B1308

The B1038 has no exit or entry from the M11, it is between J8 & J9.
B1038 is the buntingford to newport road and if heading southbound, you will have to exit J10 on M11, J9 is limited access and only exits northbound to A11 and enters southbound to M11
