Turkish Maps

When we were in Turkey earlier this year we had a hire car and did quite a bit of exploring. However, all the maps that I could find were small scale and very basic to say the least!!! They showed roads that didn't seem to exist and didn't show alot of minor roads that certainly did exist......and there was no depiction of other features!

Are there any good general purpose maps produced in Turkey and where can I get them from?

Thanks for that!!!
Unfortunately niether of those links provide anything like enough detail.......I was looking for something with a similar level of detail to the UK Ordnance Survey maps. Maybe that is too much to expect......

bod, maybe you are looking to something as detailed as this
streetmap.co.uk

but we dont have it. None of the cities in Turkia have been yet rebuild in computer environment the way the UK and US cities have.

Unfortunately we need to change the whole postcode system first which was a pain to introduce maybe 10 years ago. The postcodes we have are completely useless to find a certain adress/building as they represent a whole neighborhood.

Some automotive related companies were working on detailed mapping and digitalizing because of the GPS systems but I dont know how far they have gone yet. They might have covered parts of Istanbul and other big cities but I dont think they will make their maps public as they want to sell their things.

This is the most detailed map I could find:
http://www.istanbul.net.tr/istanbul_harita.asp?PN=1168
and here is one for Ankara:

Erdinc wrote this one and a half year ago. But is there maybe since that time a book for sale with maps of the large(st) cities of Turkey? Who can provide me with information?
