I came across a post mentioning that there were three main providers of maps which were used by sat nav software developers. Is that correct because I can only find TeleAtlas who seem to be the main force in Europe and Navteq who dominate the US? My location is in the UK but although sat navs may have just UK maps there is usually an upgrade for European maps . That seems to rule out say the Ordnance Survey who spring to mind in Britain.

These two are the biggest but there are many more, especially in the newer markets like Asia or Southern America.
