Oh, I did not know that it was not possible to detect in what country the location was.
don't worry, it's possible, just not yet implemented. I even know someone who has promised to implement it
The interface sounds confusing. When I take a cab and the cabbie enters my address into GPS, they enter it as 123 St and it displays 123 Street Name, they poke their finger at the displayed list of 2-3 names and off we go.
They do not have to enter Country, then fiddle with the interface to get out of Street back into City, enter City, then enter Street name, then enter House number.
Yeah, not very user friendly. We also have an option under POI search to look for a given address around a given point. Enter 123 str and press envelope icon. It doesn't know about city borders though.
You asked if I was using internal GUI. I do not know, whatever comes up on the screen is what I am using. Is there another GUI that works differently?
sorry, there are no other options on wince
In real life I am a software developer working primarily in finacial and manufacturing sector. I could try to develop an algorithm to detect a country if you are interested. One question I have is how come when I entered Ca the first country that comes up is Cameroon, while the map I am loading contains only partial USA and Canada. Does OSM map contain all countries of the world regardless of the bounding box, or does navit come with a list of countries?
Country list is hardcoded into Navit. Btw, downloaded map data contains some bits of info outside of the downloaded region, too.
We we would highly appreciate your contribution to navit development. You're welcome to ask for any help needed on the forum or on irc channel.
