Unfortunately there's nothing more recent than 1.8 for Middle East but there appears to be one poster who seems to be releasing all the new versions on there geography by geography. I might just put in a request there. Thanks.
I suggest you have a look at the "tomtom iphone generator" thread which is stickied in this forum. It will allow you to insert a Middle East map (current version is 895, released just a few days ago) into a 1.11 app.
Interestingly this will result in the application having a more recent map than the pre-packaged 1.11, which if I am not mistaken came out with 890 maps.
Unfortunately, No. Searched everywhere and also took advice on using the Iphone TomTom Generator but that also proved fruitless as there is no META.TXT to go with the latest map to be able to generate a working IPA.
