Navteq tries to get into the web mapping game with a website that is a little clunky, out of date and has coarse satellite imagery. They've got a long way to go . . . .

And they forgot about opera too...
But it's good the competition is growing. Better products for users... ;-)

It crashes Firefox on Mac... :huh: Had a look with Safari. Nice, the oblique map view is an interesting touch, but I'm not terribly impressed with the satellite data. Some of the places I checked out had horrible black gaps between individual photos...

This has been in operation for a while now, as Maps24.com. I didn't like that much either. It's too bad

I like their colours. Better than what I remember from Map24.
Map24 was actually bought by Navteq -> Nokia, so it´s basically the same I´d assume.
