TomTom used to use NavTeq European maps (which covered UK/Ireland too) and
UK/Ireland maps. The NavTeq maps were far better - I have a TomTom One 2nd
came with the NavTeq maps (version 660.something). I upgraded to the
latest maps (v815),
which are now all from TeleAtlas (which TomTom has purchased) and they're
they've got some of the latest roads (e.g. the new N4/M50 junction), but are
accurate and less detailed - my house is only on the old map! I put the
old maps on the same memory card, so I can switch between them. I don't
if all of Europe is as badly served by TeleAtlas as Ireland.
