Roads are constantly changing, being improved and redeveloped.
Updating the maps and software on your GPS will ensure your GPS keeps up with these constant map changes.
There are just two major map suppliers - Tele Atlas and Navteq and they have massive teams of people working on this.
Drivers on all the major roads of Europe, people at computers assembling and adding changes - its a huge industry.
Lets explain one thing from the start: There is no such thing as a "free map".
It’s important to update your GPS maps, content and software on regular basis.
