Latest maps from Magellan now out. Two updates in a year, starting to look good for Magellan and us.. Map Vs. 41
Any noticeable differences now that Magellan switched to TeleAtlas maps?
I've seen multiple reports to the effect that the TeleAtlas maps are causing problems; poorly-chosen or downright absurd routings, primarily. I tried a friend's 1700 which had TeleAtlas maps myself, and it continually tried to direct me to routes that were anything but optimal. I was running it side-by-side with my 1475T with 2010 Spring (NavTeq) maps, and the 1475 was clearly doing a better job. Even my old 3140 could come up with a more useful route than the 1700. I won't be buying any additional map updates until I see confirmation that Magellan has got this well and truly fixed...and based on my experience with them so far, I'm figuring on not buying any updates for at least 6 months.
Anyone else experiencing Magellan issues with the TeleAtlas Maps? Just curious how wide spread the integration of Magellan software and TeleAtlas has become....
