    Just kind of jumping in here - I haven't read all I need to yet. My first question would be how are either MS or Navtech going to enforce these restrictions? If they are counting on the honor system to hold fast in the face of draconian restrictions, they might be surprised.

    mappoint eula

    Navtech is the most accurate digital map database available. There's a reason that MS agreed to the terms. They had to in order to continue using Navtech for routing. The individual who said that GDT is catching up to Navtech in terms transportation attribution is sadly mistaken. Navtech spends a lot of money on driving the roads to collect the attributes needed for safe and legal driving directions. Driving the roads makes their product superior in positional accuracy as well.

    GDT has got the market cornered on GIS solutions that don't require routing or navigation. Beyond GIS, they can't compete

    Latest post disregards NavTech greatest and only competitor: Tele Atlas, which has navigable streets of most of the same countries. Especially stronger in Europe.
