Excuse me, what is this POI index used for?  I guess that it must be
something else than the submenus of Where To?/Find Places, because that
has worked on my Edge 705 as long as I remember.  Do some units implement
POI and address search differently?  Even street name search works on
my Edge 705 with pretty much default mkgmap options (--gmapsupp --route).
