Well for Mapsource I also had no real improvement (somtimes a bit 
shorter, sometimes a bit more highways/big streets). But on my Vista HCx 
routing over very long distances really improved. On a Nuvi I tried I 
had no more routing errors no matter where in Europe I tried to route 
to. I think Mapsource/Roadtrip mainly suffer from inter tile routing 
problems, while routing over tile boarders on the GPS makes no 
difference. I also noted the "keep on .. ramp" things, I don't really 
understand why this happens here, with my mtb maps I don't have this 

I'm not using the merge-nodes option, never improved routing for me, 
only made it worse (both in Mapsource and on GPS).
