Since Road POI search would affect the performance of the unit than I would prefer an address search for road. Probably that's the reason why Garmin has a separate search function from the menu. :thumbsup:

Mine was a no coz some Malaysian road names are common and too distracting when it is slow to search especially when car is moving :mrgreen:
Prefer faster search.

My 2 cents ...

I will prefer to have my Garmin response faster to my queries... sometimes you are on the move and you can't afford to wait that few seconds for Garmin to search... cause its a decision you have to make to turn or not to turn at that junction...

we must also keep in mind that every now and then new info is incorporated in our maps.. so the more we going to have the slower its going to get.....

So a "NO" for me please....

if there is 2 way for you to choose from KL to Peneng.
1st travel in 3 hours.
2nd travel in 2 hours.
I'll choose "2nd". the faster way.
so i can use the extra 1 hour to enjoy Fried Kuy Teow. :mrgreen:
Now a day PPL love fast and faster.
That's why i choose NO :peace:
