[mkgmap-dev] Country unification in address search

From Gerd Petermann GPetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Fri Nov 13 08:48:24 GMT 2015

Please try again with r3650. I fixed one place that caused an error,
but there may be more. The data flow is a bit spaghetti within mkgmap,
country names are translated to ISO and vice versa, one never knows
for sure what a specific method expects. 
I am not yet sure where to clean this.

after quite some testing, I think we see a problem of a corrupted
or wrong index.
All tests are done with my GPSMap 62s.

After looking at the OSM data:
- All addresses found below "AUT" are tagged in OSM with country=AT
  This at least tells me, that the mapping AT => AUT is working
- The addresses found below "AUT" looks the same way as the
  ones below "Oesterreich", and according too google and OSM data,
  the addresses are correct (as used in Austria) and fits with the
  OSM data.
- For many of the addresses found only below "AUT": If I select one,
  one of the two things will happen:
  1. the device crashes
  2. I get a list of street names/house numbers/cities I have to choose
     from, which have nothing to do with the address I searched for.

This all let me think that at least my GARMIN device is intrepreting
the address index a little bit different or there is a broken pointer
somewhere in it.
