Just updated the firmware for the I-Way and it got me to thinking about the map software.

What is the current version of the NAVTEQ database tor the I-Way? Mine is Q3-05.

I presume there is aQ3-06. Is the update worth the cost?

Thanks for the input,

Mike

The current version is Q1-06. The biggest change in the map data is better use of the addressing in the database which allows for 'predictive' text selection.

With the new data, when you go to search for an address, it first prompts you for the State, then the City (or zip code), then the address number and street number. As you start to type characters that match the database, it gives you selections that you can choose from, which reduces the frustration of trying to match up with the exact format of the database entry.

I think this was onlly released in October or November, so it'll probably be a while before they release another update. If you've had the GPS for more than 6 months, the cost of the update is $75.
