MapSource is able to find all Friedrichstr. in Berlin. Putting the
mkgmap created map on my 62s: I can only find one Friedrichstr. in
Exporting the map from MapSource (where I can find all streets)
to my 62s: I still can only find one Friedrichstr. in Berlin.
If I search for Friedrichstr. without City, I cannot find any
Friedrichstr. in Berlin.

It's very surprising to me that MapSource can find Streets while
the 62s cannot find them on the MapSource exported map.
