Do you prefer Road POIs to search for street name?

Postby antyong (retired) » Sat Sep 20, 2008 11:19 am

Guys,

With MFM map, you are able to search street name via Garmin's search address function. MFM maps also incorporates the latest feature of partial search, meaning searching for "Subang" will also yield "Kemajuan Subang, Psn" as result. Basically MFM map provide full address search functionality except house numbers.

However, some of our members are use to search street names through POIs. The Road POI maps are our first community project more than 2 years ago when we were not able to make maps with search address function. The creation of road POI maps are fully automated now so it won't be an effort for me to add road POIs to our maps. However adding more POIs will mean slow response on your device.

Please vote for your preference.

I second Adrianyujs' opinion and have voted "no" as well. :) Address search is faster than POI search.

How come no choice for those who don't mind either way or prefer to have both way together? :-'

I chose 'yes' because I am used to the old way of searching address. :mrgreen:

-sigh- -sigh- and -sigh- I am emotional about this issue.... so many bums strained their eyes to create the initial Road POI... and worst... my neighbors and my wife love it !!! but I like the Address Search becos it is faster on my HTC Touch (running on 200Mhz).... so you know my half half position..... how about ability to select which to install before creating gmapsupp.img :mrgreen: tough hor... :D
