Tomton owns TeleAtlas.
There are two big players in the market (jet), TeleAtlas and Navteq (TomTom and Nokia).
This to gigants serve the nav systems with data.
For big countries they made their own map, in smaller (less important) countries, where are a local map data provider, their bought the map source an the updates.
Google started to prepare his own service, but it is not jet used.
Then comes the frre mapping services, like OSM.
And now comes Waze, too.
So if You check the main online map providers, You will see usually this two type of maps, but not all have the new, updated data resource.

Google's own maps are used in a number of areas, anywhere where Google MapMaker works! You can see the source in the lower right corner of maps.google.com for your current view
