Navteq - 8B Navigation DVD Update - When????

Does anyone have information on when Navteq will update the North America Maps to Version 8B? I have been emailing Navteq and I keep getting the same answer;

"Thank you for contacting NAVTEQ. At this time the release date of the next update for your Volkswagen Touareg has not been officially announced. The last update was released August 2009 and generally updates are released every 12-18 months."

So Aug, 2009 is a little past 18 months?

I have the 2011 (most recent version) of the US maps DVD that I am willing to sell. This is the original DVD with original case and manual. I am willing to part with it for $90. Let me know if you're interested

In our Phaeton, we are using 2011 map data. In fact, we just updated from our 2010 map data.

How? We got sick and tired of waiting for Navteq to release new maps. So someone figured out that Phaeton uses the same Siemens unit used on BMW 7-series from way before Bimmer went HDD...

So, we've been using Bimmer "High" Version maps by Tele Atlas since 2008... if we were waiting for Navteq to release their "every 18 months" version, we'd still be stuck in 2006!

On the Touareg, we run the latest maps available from Navteq, which we bought in September last year. Someone needs to figure out what other car systems use Blaupunkt, and go with that. Maybe there's a Bimmer that does? BMW used to use Navteq (I have Navteq for Bimmer disks for 2008 and 2009) but Bimmer dumped Navteq for Tele Atlas. BMW has been pretty good about coming out with annual updates.
