[mkgmap-dev] Address Searches on new GPSmap66S

From manfred.haiduk manfred.haiduk at freenet.de on Wed Nov 7 17:25:24 GMT 2018

Just some thoughts from my side about adress search on garmin device. Since more than a year i owned the new GPSMAP276CX. Comparing to the former GPSMAP276 the adress search is extremly slow, even when i first do it with GARMIN CITY NAVIGATOR MAP. The old one (276) show up search results after each letter which was typed in, nearly the same time, as i typed them. The new 276Cx seems to be blocked during input, you have to wait some seconds between each letter. But in the end, the search has success. This behaviour can be seen also on self made maps compiled with mkgmap. I myself have the feeling, that GARMIN uses a slow search routine compared to former devices. Another hint, i think they have merged their software to have only one branch for all street navigation devices, i.e Nuvi, GPSMAP etcVon meinem Samsung Gerät gesendet.
