All I can think from experiencing the same thing on our 07 is that the Mercedes nav discs do not go down to the level of detail that most portable GPS units show. Unfortunate, but I don't know of a fix. :)

But this was a Euro car and the Navteq map data for Europe is very detailed, at least for the area I'm familiar with.

OP could mention where he drives the car, V8 maps does sound like quite old specifically for a region in Europe where Navteq added coverage very recently.

That is an old revision for the European maps. They are up to v11 or v12 now.

Yes it is V11 now but i only had access to V8 because the dealer was closed this weekend, I find it strange that a map at same price as a complete navigation unis has so poor information and no house numbers on small roads.
