Are there any solutions available in the way of good quality digital mapping in the above areas......... I am running Tomtom personally, but my brother in law is moving out there to a haulage job....

New hadware would not be a problem, but up to date maps are a rarity I hear......

This is the answer someone got when they contacted TomTom

Quote:
Thank you for your question regarding TomTom maps. TomTom is investigating the possibility of adding new unsupported countries but TomTom will not do so unless the DIGITAL map data is of a satisfactory quality. May we ask you to please keep an eye on our website in the months to come.

The DIGITAL data for the Republic of Ireland at this time from our DIGITAL map provider Tele Atlas is not of a quality that we find satisfactory. When this improves perhaps we will investigate the possibility of having this map data available.

The TomTom GO 700 will have some map data of Ireland but this will be limited to some areas of Cork, Dublin, and Galway along with the major roads data only. If you are not within the available data on the map then you will not have a GPS signal.

Northern Ireland is covered with 25 percent map coverage (perhaps slightly more) within the GB map but this is all of the DIGITAL map data our DIGITAL map provider Tele Atlas has available to us at this time.

If we decide to include the Republic of Ireland in any downloadable map with GB then only Dublin and the major roads will be included at the present time. That map is posted here and within this map map coverage of Northern Ireland has increased from 25 percent to 34 percent. This map contains the major roads of Ireland and Dublin, but no detailed map as of yet.

That's basically what I got also............ Slightly less detail though...

Does anyone do any half decent digital mapping of ireland? Like I said, hardware is not a problem, he will buy whatever is needed....

Just seems like Ireland is a bit of a "black hole"?? Confused

Search GPSIreland in Google and have a browse.

Evidently there will be excellent coverage in March next year.

I tried copy and paste but this site wont allow 'tags'.
