Route 200 not on latest map

 

I just came back from Rockville, MD From 495 I headed north on I95 and around Beltsville I see Route 200 Toll Rd. To 29. It's open and it does look new but I would think the latest Garmin map would show it but it doesn't.
Anyone know how long that road has been there?

New road.

No, but it takes a long while sometimes for new roads to show on Garmin.

Check navteq.com first. If it is not on there, tell them.

If it is, tell Garmin

Route 200 is the ICC Intercounty Connector

It opened in February 2011. The first strip opened from Gburg to Georgia Ave and then it seemed it wasn't too long before the rest of it opened all the way to 95. I've used it a number of times. It shows up on my Blackberry's navigation. On my Garmin, it shows me driving across empty fields. I do not have the latest maps.

PSA: I don't have extensive experience (maybe 20 times) but each time I've been on it, I've seen cops pulling over speeders. The highway is 4 lanes; it's wide open; and the temptatation to speed is high. On the trip from Gburg to 95, there's a wide curve that effectively hides the police officer until you've passed him. I always set my speed control.

New roads can take 2 years

New roads can take 2 years or more to make it to the Navteq maps.

I will

I will go with more...I don't know why Google response time to new roads is much quicker. When Google updated their satellite view in my area, I notified them of a new road and a closed road and that they could compare the sat view with the map. Google responded quickly and made the changes in just a few weeks.

The ICC is 55 mph but you could do 95 and be safe (traffic aside of course). So many want it raised to 65 but the State won't have it. Probably because its also making $$ thru tickets. How long before speed cameras show up is anyone's guess.

Its a toll road that's 100% electronic collection. And I heard its the most expensive per-mile rate in the country. Higher than I-95 in Delaware even. Full speed EZPass sensors at about 4-5 locations along its length. If you don't have EZPass, it captures a picture and mails a bill to the car owner.

The maps Garmin uses are produced by Navteq and not by Garmin!

They in turn use the newest available maps on paper and raster scan them to make them computer readable. Paper maps take time to produce and by the time they are published are technically somewhat behind the time already.

So do not blame Garmin since effectively they are between the map makers and the consumer.

Maybe Garmin could pair with Google when their contract with Navteq expires.

Why would Navteq have hundreds of specially equipped vehicles driving the roads and getting accurate fixes on street locations, speed limits, intersections, off ramps and the like?

I honestly don't believe they've raster scanned a paper map since they can get them as GIS shape files direct from cities, towns, counties and states as well as developers.

Google?

As monopolistic as Google seems to be, I doubt if they are interested in any kind of mutually beneficial partnership with Garmin or anyone else ... maybe a take over using the "absorb and kill" strategy that companies like Google seem to like.

Switching From Navteq?

I sure hope not, should that happen our lifetime map updates may be useless. I doubt Garmin would transfer the subcription if they went with Google.

Straight from Garmin:
"¹If you purchase a nüMaps Lifetime subscription (sold separately or bundled together with certain GPS models), you will receive up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for 1 compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter."

This is serious drawback to

This is serious drawback to GPS's like garmin map updates are always slow. My new android phone has much more recent updates because google does a better job. We could say its because they are bigger have more resources, etc, but they do a much better job than gamin at keeping maps up to date. And they backup and restore my phone's settings so when I upgrade to a new one, I don't have to pay for new lifetime maps smile

Check MapQuest

MapQuest actually has the latest map available from Navteq (even more up to date than the navteq site itself), and I just checked and it looked like the road you were talking about is there, meaning it will either be on this upcoming map update or the next one after that. But always make sure you check mapquest before you report it to navteq.

Good idea. The by-pass around Fort Madison Iowa was completed a year ago. My Garmin still does not show it, but Mapquest does show it.

Navteq has to drive the route before they include it in their maps. Sometimes it takes a while but this seems a little excessive for a major road.

Did not know this

Just checked and the new ramps I reported in our area are on Mapquest. So soon to be on the GPS.

What is the relationship between MapQuest and Navteq. Garmin get's it's maps from Navteq, right?

Garmin gets it's maps from Navteq, and so does mapquest. It just so happens that MapQuest updates their maps to match Navteq's changes faster than Garmin does, which is why you will see new roads and changes on MapQuett's maps that might not yet be on Garmin's.
