The companies are

Teleglobe and Navteq

Garmin uses Navteq cartography as does Ford for their onboard Nav systems

A couple of years ago there was a huge controversy about a GPS hardware vendor buying Teleglobe.  Thereby leaving no competition in the digital cartography market

There always seems to be a discrepancy between postal/street  addresses and GPS street addresses

Did you ever actually get a contact inside Garmin?

I have the same problem. If you punch in an address, it sends you to the
wrong end of a long road.

I've been told there are two mapping companies. Anybody know who they are?
