[mkgmap-dev] Address search: feature requestFrom Carlos Dávila cdavilam at orangecorreo.es on Thu Jan 12 19:57:02 GMT 2012
First of all, a big thank you Steve and all how have contributed to get address search working on mkgmap generated gmapsupp. I think it's a big improvement. In a further step, it would be great to be able to search for partial street names, so that for languages in which street names begin with a word like Street/Avenue/whatever you don't need to type all it. Apart of the annoyance of having to type those extra letters with the minimalistic keyboard of the device, there's the problem that many times you don't know how exactly the name is written in the map. For example in Spain you can have the same street written as Calle foo, Calle of foo, C/ foo, C. foo, ... Abbreviated forms should be fixed in the data, but in many cases you can see Calle foo and Calle of foo in the signs on the street, so they both are equally valid. About one year ago, Johann Gail gave some information about how it could be achieved. See http://www.mkgmap.org.uk/pipermail/mkgmap-dev/2011q1/009922.html If I can help in any way to get this feature, let me know.
