I too live in Melbourne. By not working, I was indeed referring to not being worth the money. Sorry about the bad choice of words. Can you tell me if Eastlink is on the new maps ? Do the camera POI's show the cameras on Eastlink ?
Thanks for your reply. I hope to hear from you soon.
The new 8.15 maps are out and are definitely worth the upgrade. The IQ2 routing (depending on the time of day) made a huge difference to the accuracy of the estimated time. Combine that with an RDS receiver and it you have a very good tool to avoid the worst congestions. The lane guidance is also most welcome as it now much easier to find the right lane.
Some smaller roads are not part of the Suna network and if the they are blocked as well, the TomTom will suggest maybe not the best route - at the moment there is still no substitude to local human experience... But these new maps are a huge step in the right direction.
Hi, I am using ver 8 currently, it better than the old ver 7 map, but as gerhofer said "at the moment there is still no substitute to local human experience" there is still a lot of bug & not accurate, so far I know, there is 3 ver map for ver 815.2057 , 815.2059, 815.2086 & the one that work with map share only 815.2057.
i wouldnt worry about paying for new maps untill to find a new road in your travel aria thats not on your maps. or maybe every 2 years get a new map. In the last few years in the melbourne / Geelong area there has been many new freeway updates, my maps are about two years old and i badly need new maps but dont like to pay the asking price
