I'm considering taking a motoring holiday in Ireland and would like to know
if there have been any major improvements in TomTom maps recently. My
current map of "Western and Central Europe" is Tele Atlas v650.1052 and I
wish to know if any later release is a major improvement in detail in the
city of Dublin and in rural Kerry and Cork or just maintenance releases for
subsequent road changes.

Generally speaking Navteq have been better at mapping Ireland. IIRC the
q2 2006 release had pretty much everything...

See - http://www.yournav.com/content/n/162/


From my experience the TeleAtlas maps were less accurate and the
routings seemed strange if not dangerous.

I don't. However if you go to www.boards.ie and select the Gadgets forum
there are old threads there on spotting which TomTom has Navteq and
which hasn't. If I recall it was difficult to tell from the box label.
