[mkgmap-dev] How to remove an index from an existing map

Thanks a lot for your hints.

address search.
Thanks for that hint. I did not know that.

With the slow speed of the items appearing in the list, that likely 
holds true for the Oregon series also.

 > use 0x00000 codes that are not searchable
Well, I could do so when creating my own map. But the situation is the 
other way round: I want the data of my map to be shown, but the data of 
other maps to be ignored (and these otgher maps use the "normal" codes).

Consequently, with the current firmware of the Oregon, it is not 
possible to de-activate the POI search of certain maps which are 
available on the device.
A disappointing result, but at least I learned some things...
