Why Are GPS Maps Out of Date?

GPS Review tackles a basic question, but a frequent one nonetheless: why are the maps in GPS navigation units out of date? The same question could, and doubtless has, been asked about all consumer mapping products — online maps included. The answer, GPS Review says, is in the information chain, and in the steps the data takes from the producer to the final product. (The answer is as applicable elsewhere as the question is.)
