[mkgmap-dev] missing street in mapsource address search

From WanMil wmgcnfg at web.de on Mon Mar 14 18:46:22 GMT 2011


the message appears if you enter a street and a city in the search mask 
and there is no such street in the city. The mapping which street 
belongs to which city is a pending problem of mkgmap. You can test that 
by entering the street name only.

The locator branch tries to improve the city mapping. You can download 
it here: http://www.mkgmap.org.uk/snapshots/
But it is still under development.
