    No chance Garo... always routes me somewhere completely across the city! Tried with different numbers, and without number.

    Is there anything else that can tried to be done while keeping the fulltext search (that I realize is very useful - although I'd like to see a button on the OSK to disable that in case I know the beginning of the streetname only)...

    of course all this wont be useable by poor me if there isnt a workaround for destinators sloppy SDK!

    Any idea of the PN sdk? have you gotten a working version? (in case you didnt see this... Destinator PN SDK post 39) maybe he can help?

    If there is anything else at all you think could help please tell me... isnt there some way of checking whether Destinator found the right address or make it search again or something?

    The full text search find a street even if you have only the initial letters of the name...

    I have seen that thread but it seems that no one has still get it working.

    There is a way to check if the address is correct, but it's very hard to search again in a different way... I'll check it out!

    An idea would be to check where it is navigating TO (I remember that on freedrive, when it got the address wrong it would put the WRONG address on a label "destinaton: xxxx") so I assume it IS possible to read the WRONG address.

    Then compare that to the "selected" address, and if they dont match only THEN re-route in a different way...

    of course, if you cn find a better way to route, from the beginning, it would be nice I think... but beggars arent choosers

    I am downloading a version of PN sdk, if I get it to load up I will PM you

    @garo, the fulltext looks for certain text anywhere in the street name, no? (at least for me it has been doing this)

    I wanted an option to use regular search (no fulltext), like a "FULLTEXT ON/OFF" button in the OSK. Would it be possible?

    Yeah, this is what GN is currently doing when it detects wrong routing between different cities... The problem is to find another method to route in the same city... I'll try!

    When you write a text now, with the first two characters GN will list the streets/city that begin with that text; then with three or more chars, it performs a full text search. I may add that button in the future!

    Seeing as we all know how deficient & buggy the Destinator SDK is, why haven't people started using the new TomTom 5 SDK to code new apps. ???

    As I know TomTom 5 SDK is only for PDA, not for Windows XP! Have I miss something?! :S

    Furthermore TomTom maps are far worse than Destinator... I have TomTom 5 on the cellphone and is awful compared to Destinator PN maps...

    The maps on PN that I got are actually pretty good.... overall sdk functions and flexibility isnt so great though... (changing map fonts, etc, changing map colors, routing options, tmc, etc,etc,etc)

    Garo, I understand now about the first 2 letters... I'd appreciate the button though, cause I have 45000 streets +/-, and the first 2 letters usually doesnt get me to a list small enough to find the street I want...

    Also, you should take a look at the number thing... I have noticed that sometimes not all numbers show up...

    in one case (MIN Rocha Azevedo Al), the numbers go upto somewhere near 1400, but garonav stops at 136

    Thanks for your efforts!
