It is 1999- 2002 road data, and it shows allot of minor road data not on the Nav-teq maps, plus it is allot cheaper than the downloadable maps.
make sure you buy it with their card reader/writer as that is the only way to use the maps with a GPS.
One cool feature is you can turn off the topo roads and highways but leave the topo lines on with the NavTeq maps, very cool. if you are going to run it on a bike , make a small sun shield, it helps allot to see the screen in the daytime,
have fun with it.
