I am currently testing the street and address indexing for the garmin
map.  This is a long time wanted feature for our garmin maps.

On the current map, newer models like nuvis cannot use the "Where to"
> "Address" option.  This is possible for older models like etrex and
venture by compiling the map via Mapsource.  As a workaround, we
converted the street as a POI in order to search for the streetnames.

Just today, I compiled a new map and its works! [1].  There are a
couple of bugs though, but basically, you can now use the  "Where to"
> "Address" to search for streets.
We need more tests before public distribution.  If you want to test
please download the maps here:

for mapsource -
for mac roadtrip or basecamp -

Please report any problems so that we can isolate whether it is a data
or a compiler issue.  Enjoy bug hunting!
