Meanwhile , after some more test it seems to me that transparency of a 
map prohibits address search.
If i disable the tranparency of my map, address search works for it, 
also if i have tiles from another map with index( e.g. //openmtbmap De) 
//on my gps together with it.
Curiously i can always only address search on my trail map and not on 
the openmtbmap, although both maps are in the same region where i located.
I played already around with setting of Drawprioity and mapid, but can't 
find out the reason for this behaviour.
As far as i can see its related to the effect, that you only can search 
in the region(however it is defined)/tile where you are located.
My trail map covers a wider region then a single tile of the 
//openmtbmap De. //If i move my location on gps while gps receiver is 
off, to a region which is covered from a tile of the openmtbmap De, 
immediately the address search works for this map and no more for my 
trail map.

afaik(at this time)
1. one can have more then one mapset with address index one gps
2. Address search only works for a tile
3. the map which covers  the wider area will be taken for address search 
if there are more then one map(out of different mapsets) for a region
4. transparent maps can't be used on GPS for adress search
