check on navteq.com, look for eastern europe nav dvd. I suppose it's the profi one and it includes HU maps, as well as slovenia, croatia, poland etc.

Yes, I spent time making a fake screen shot. Why don't YOU go to google maps and look at the bottom of the map. It says NAVTEQ right there.

There are two things.

1. I-DRIVE is SLOW. It cannot render quick enough. So more details are going to cause it to slow down.
2. Extra details are not required. It just needs to get your from Point A to Point B.

Benyl.... Google maps are consulting NAVTEQ.....and also Tele Atlas.... Europa Technologies...PWK and many other companies depending on the countries. Try moving around the google map and they will be shown on the bottom right corner. That's why google maps are much more detailed than NAVTEQ's. They take the best of other navigation companies.
2008 I-Drive is not that slow that cant render quick enough more details. And to go from point A to point B these points musy be listeded on the map....dont you think so? When i mention more detailed maps i mean that there must be listed more cities and not the big cities of each country. Must be listed secondary roads and not only highways. For example... Here in Greece Navteq has the maps of only of one city, Athens the capital of Greece meanwhile Google maps have the detailed map and streets of more than 30 cities.
