After playing around a bit on my Vista HCx I did notice slightly 
different routing too. The maximum distance that it manages without 
"route calculation error" did not change however.

Routing in Mapsource is now different too. So far I have found one route 
that does not calculate with the old version, but with the new. The 
difference is however 2-3 more turns, so no drastical improvement. Maybe 
some routes also degrade?
