While not a completely updated map, one of the posters here created a Safehold Globe which incorporates the latest partial maps at Illustrating David Weber's Books.

Unfortunately, it's complicated, but you essentially install the Celestia software and then the Safehold Addon Version 2 (Safehold_V2.zip).

Then you can turn the globe around, see it from any angle and zoom in to the max resolution. It includes the latest partial maps as overlays. I think the base map is MTT, though.

It's neat to see Safehold as a actual world in space and "fly" around it.

It is a little complicated to set up the first time, but very neat to look at.

And apologies to the individual who did all this work, but I forgot your name
