Tesla navigation no longer uses Garmin data

I reported a Tesla navigation map error to Garmin, as recommended earlier in these forums, and received the following reply:

Tesla is actually no longer working with Garmin. They used to, but that is no longer the situation. I apologize for the runaround, but the Tesla maps are no longer produced by Garmin. At this point, you would need to contact Tesla.

GOOD. Garmin does not keep their stuff updated well. Hopefully they use google maps, you can at least make live edits/corrections there.

I thought Tesla dropped Garmin 2+ years ago. The main map has always been Google, but the local map may now be sourced from an open-source map. Perhaps someone else knows which map source they are using.

@TeslaTap: Tesla was using Garmin Navigon until June 2017, then switched to Tom Tom. Now they use a proprietary system based on open source Mapbox and Valhalla. Here’s my source: https://www.quora.com/Whose-mapping-service-do-Tesla-cars-use-for-its-in...
