    Default 2008/2009 Sat Nav Disk worse than old disk

    I borrowed my friends 2008/09 sat nav disk at the weekend and noticed that the TMC dosent cover nearly half as much as the 07/08 disk.

    When i searched for traffic info the nearest to me (near Lincoln) was down in London, i put the 07/08 disk and there were quite a few within a few miles of my location !!

    I also noticed spelling mistakes on a couple of streets and a incorectly marked street.

    Also petrol sations in my town that closed down over 7 years ago are still showing !

    Anyone else notice problems

    Terran (CCSNET) said something similar and saved me going out and buying one.. hope it improves at some point or I'll be stuck with 2007/2008.

    I did also notice that the Worksop roundabout on the A1 was still listed despite being removed several months ago.


    I did have a 08/09 sealed disk but sold it as i needed the cash, just thought i would try my friends before i got another.

    Doesn't this have something to do with the change to Trafficmaster
    I understood that TMC is no (or no longer) free service in the UK

    Found this on Wikipedia:
    [edit] United Kingdom
    The private company iTIS Holdings provides a commercial TMC service iTMC in the United Kingdom. It is broadcast nationally on Classic FM. The price of the service can be included in the price of the car or of the navigation system. This system uses traffic data collected from sensors installed on fleet vehicles known as a Floating Vehicle Data system consisting of approximately 50,000 vehicles. Eddie Stobart haulage have this system installed within 750 vehicles, AA Patrol 3,800, and National Express 530.

    RAC Live operated by RAC Trafficmaster Telematics (RTT) a 50-50 joint venture between RAC Motoring Services and Trafficmaster also operates a national service. It uses the local and regional radio broadcaster Global Radio to ensure reception across mainland Britain. This system uses a road side infrastructure to measures a vehicle's travel time between sensors placed a few miles apart, and uses number plate recognition technology.

    Both providers are responsible for their own location tables. The current location table version of ITIS is 5.1. The current location table version of Trafficmaster is 3.1 .

    Within the United Kingdom TMC services are only offered as pay services. As such they are currently always carried by commercial radio stations rather than by the BBC, a public service broadcaster. The BBC is required by its charter to be free from both political and commercial influence and is therefore unable to carry a pay service unavailable to all.
