Have done that.

Not really impressed, TomTom shows both new roads.

Which new roads are these? We've had a couple of new roads/new estates where I live and Garmin had them on the next update?

The A555 Manc Airport by-pass was on the Garmin SatNav maps before it was was open to traffic!

There is a new estate being built around where I live and several roads that have not been even started are on my Garmin map, but a major bypass road that had been open for several months prior to the map issue is not there.

I have the same on a new estate. When I took mine out for a test drive it sent me down this road that didn't exist - it almost did but the barriers and diggers were a bit of a problem. TomTom also shows those roads as complete.

And another mistake found. A new road layout has been built, shifting and raising the road and adding a roundabout, cutting off a minor road which previously had access to the old road layout and that end of the minor road has now been built over with a car park. The new road shows but Garmin have decided there is access to that old road and have just automatically linked the two, even though there is now a 20ft drop, rather than actually looking at it. Even the latest Google satellite images clearly show the road doesn't exist any more. TomTom show it correctly. Not totally impressed with Garmin maps, TomTom seem generally better.
