It's geeky data miners vs. old-school drivers in the pitched battle to provide digital driving directions to the likes of Google and Garmin. May the best map win.

I wonder why Google API's use Teleatlas data and Google maps Navteq? Then Yahoo Maps uses both. From my personal experience, Navteq seems to have the edge over Teleatlas, but who knows, there's too much data to go look over, some areas ones got the other beat, other areas both look like raw TIGER data from 20 years ago. The company I work for uses GPS tracks submitted by customers that use our product and we update our data that way, along with aerials, and/or local and DOT news.
