    It depends on the product... for MWS / VE / Windows Live Local it is approx. 2x per year in my recollection.

    Address Updates

    Man, that seems kind of sluggish. I can see it for the cd-based MapPoint Desktop solution but I would've thought that the web service would be closer to realtime. Is the same schedule in place for MPWS's other supplier GDT?

    I didn't think they are using GDT anymore.. ?

    Hey -- the desktop product gets released about every 2.5 years

    From my experience with major data vendors, quarterly updates are common, for someone like MS to wrap up a product (MWS/VE) and offer commercial service every six months is a real feat. There's no real-time. Navteq doesn't have real-time data.
