It works for me (Edge 705) as long as I remember. My only problem is 
that the house number is ignored and a point, apparently at half-way the 
street, is returned.

Have you tried splitting the tiles further? In my experience, mkgmap 
does not always flag errors when exceeding some Garmin limits, and you 
can end up with all sorts of breakage (including routing errors in some 
areas) when you generate too large tiles. The OSM data set has a 
tendency to grow. A year ago, 2 or 3 tiles of Finland was enough. Now I 
am splitting it to 6 tiles.
