Re: What is your Navteq GPS software revision?

Navteq is horrible. This may influence my decisions on whether to buy a Jeep product if they are going to do business with companies that do such a poor job. Already have 2011 Overland Summit, but wife is looking and I am tired of this navigation. Jeep should have thought about this when they decided to do business with Navteq

Old thread but wrong. You have an issue with Harmon and Jeep, not Navteq. Although inaccurately reported on some web sites, Naveteq simply provides the map data base to Garmin (430N) and Harmon (730N) who then decides how to interact with the user. Just about all name brand GPS units use the Navteq map data base. Some make use of it better than others. On the hand held market, the same map updates are much less money than for the OEM market (~$60 for lifetime). Thats a business model pricing decision. Perhaps you would like the 430N radio better. Personally I like the 430N GPS much better, but the 730N does have dead reckoning and voice command on the move features.
