on some examples this was true. But i tested this again with Metroguide tiles and openmtbmap DE
together on gps.
The smaller(less wide area) MG tile rules over the openmtbmap.
Not before you move the cursor in the wider area of the openmtbmap DE tile you can search in it.

to address search in other tiles by moving position:
there is no need to temporarily set your position to the other tile 
while gps receiver is in off mode(as i thought first).
Simply moving the cursor to the other tile is enough(on my 60csx, should 
be the same on Vista hcx and similar devices)
