The map location is nowhere near the route (roughly 10 miles off for the first one and approximately one mile on the second).  What's the process to fix it?

At the top right corner of the route page there is a link to "Improve this page".  Just click on that and provide the correct gps coordinates and the admin can update it.

So having done that a couple months ago, I got a message saying the changes are approved, but the locations haven't changed and are still wrong.  Are the changes just in a very long que or some other story?

It’s up the the page admin to manually enter the changes in. I think a lot of admins press “accept changes” but don’t realize they have to go back and edit the page manually...? 


I really wish the pages were more wiki style. The whole change process is a little strange here. (Obviously that is a lot of work to change so not really a serious “request” on my part.)

We're actually working on a totally new system to address "Page Improvements".  In the mean time, If you want to PM me the correct location for that area, I can fix it manually.
