Sorry if you are talking about Mapsource and the MDR branch only, but I have
successfully searched for Aakkulankatu in my Edge 705 some months ago.
Then again, there should not be any ref=A1 or the like in Finland.
In Germany, the motorways and trunk roads carry ref=[AB][0-9]+, as far as
I remember.  Could that (together with wrong sort order between numbers and
letters) be causing the problem?
