GPS outdated?

I bought what is admittedly a entry-level GPS late last summer, a Garmin Street Pilot 320. I was excited at first, but then discovered the mapping was out of date, trying to send me down roads that no longer existed or were one-way streets. Also, it often referred to roads which were marked with route numbers as "such and such" road.

Can I expect better mapping from a higher priced unit?
