Well not really because it's the point, you want updated Maps for E EU. There are hardly any existing maps for E EU as it is because they have either not allowed detailed mapping or is is not economically viable for the mapping companies so they have only mapped to the most basic level and they wont invest in further development.Count de Monet said:Your opinion on the status of Eastern European countries is irrelevant
My mapping software when new only included the western Europe DVD, this is why I need the updated Navteq DVD's. These: http://tinyurl.com/yha5r3h are the updated 2009/2010 two disk western / eastern Europe DVD's from Landrover / Navteq. As can be seen the updated disks are rather expensive hence my desire for a source of second hand DVD's. Maybe someone has an Eastern Europe DVD and has no desire to travel to those countries and would be prepared to part with the eastern Europe disk only.adara said:Unfortunately you are so right, there is no difference between the DVD that came with the car in 2006 and the 2009 one...

Western and Eastern Europe though - that's a lot of roads to cover.Count de Monet said:Nearly half a million kilometres have been added since the last version!'[/i]
I cannot comment if this is true as I don't have the updated DVD's but they must be better than my 2005 version
