Yes, well 3D buildings view at least (see pic below when we were driving thru Newcastle).

Difficult to compare when not looking at exactly the same location. The earlier pic would suggest the 3D view of the buildings themselves is more detailed. However I've found that for the vast majority of towns there is no 3D mapping which I assume is down to the map data. For example drive through Brighton and all the buildings show up in 3D, and some even have fine detail on them. Carry on driving into Hove and the buildings disappear to be replaced by the default grey shading. That may be true of the newer nav as well?
