Penang island is quite saturated except for remote places such as Teluk Kumbar or Balik Pulau. Here are what you can do for the urban areas.

1) Make the map more accurate. Some road are off by more than 10m. You might want to try retrack Jelutong Expressway between Jalan Perusahaan Jelutong and Gat Lebuh Melayu. The map was based on bro tympg tracklog while my tracklog yielded different result.

2) Track service roads and alleys.

If memory serves me correctly, there is at least one untracked road near the Bkt Tengah main road (Route 1) at around N5.34311 E100.43583:

If talking about Seberang Prai, there are plenty of places to track. Are you interested, uncle wong?

Hard to find - I've tried during my holidays over there. Nevertheless, try Balik Pulau kampung area and please note that there is new hiways under construction!
