Can you tell me then...
If MapPoint 2004 had (and I quote Microsoft here) "1st Quarter 2003 NAVTEQ map data" and NAVTEQ say their data is ready 3-6 months after being created, why did MapPoint 2004 not have an entire housing estate just up the road from me in Maidstone, Kent on the map? It was built in 2000, four years earlier!
This and other roads given to me by our customer (off the top of his head) make me think that this is the tip of the iceburg.
Can NAVTEQ tell us what map data Microsoft have bought and implemented in MapPoint 2006? Because if we have to re-purchase the licences for 2006 for all the customers we have using 2004, the cost needs to be justified by more than a colour change to the map.
After all, avoidance still doesn't work - you can't alter the maps - you can't run it on IIS for a Intranet Map Server - you still can't have multiple routes - it doesn't appear to be any quicker that the last version.
None of this will make our customers think "I must upgrade". If they ask "Are the maps now up to date?" I have to answer honestly "no!".
I can report closed roads to NAVTEQ? Well, that's nice, but they were closed a decade ago and I'm a software developer and it's not my business to compile a list of closed or missing roads in Greater London or the rest of the country. Otherwise I would be the one flogging maps.
