For a long time, I did not see any differences between the NDS map on MDW (which should be updated much quicker according to the NDS article here: https://automotive.tomtom.com/products-services/real-time-maps/navigation-data-standard/) and the latest PND maps. But now, I noticed a new road that I reported using the online MSR tool on December 16, 2017, which was Accepted, Fixed and is now already implemented and visible in the online NDS map. This road is not visible on the latest PND maps (v1005). So seems that slowly the NDS format shows its advantages :).

    Eh, that's strange indeed. Maybe press Shift+F5 or so? I'm using Chrome by the way.

    I had never heard of NDS maps. But what changes? A new MapShare? Or will we have to replace our TomTom? Or will the maps of the future be? Excuse the questions

    Not sure on what platforms we will see the NDS maps, but at least the online MyDrive website should have them. As you can read in the linked article, one of the main changes is the ability to update the maps much quicker. Like a couple of hours/days instead of a couple of months.

    Yeah, looks like the MSR tool still shows an older map version.

    I think some newer maps are getting into the MSR.

    They definitely look more elegant and modern.

    The green line is Traffic Flow. Maps and layers for Traffic may not have the same status.

    It now shows, since the new MSR came live.
