Does anyone know if the 2006 navigation system covers (finally) Central European countries such as Czech Rep., Poland, and Hungary?

Thanks for a positive reply :roll:

...One light in the tunnel was in 1997-1999 where there was trials on a standardisation format and in this Navteq did reached to develop the SDAL or Shared Data Access Library which is (was) a platform independent system, where the goal was that for the SDAL conversion, Navteq is doing this on their own and would licensing the compiler software to system manufacturers. In this way there would be no more need for further conversion because any SDAL map formats would be compatible with each other.

During the wait, it still did not get popular and only a few carmakers like Mazda (Panasonic), SAAB and Citroen (Clarion AutoPC) used it...
Looks like the DVDs from Mazda/Panasonic/Saab/Citroen are compatible so anyone having a friend with such car/unit with the latest DVD covering czech republic? Please try to ask anyone about this. At least the Panasonic aftermarket DVD navigation DV2300 covers CZ and SK wit the latest DVD and yes, this unit is using SDAL format.

any other progress here from anyone?
