CP5: When I look up an address to navigate to, many times I get the 'Choose an option below:' dialogue. This is somewhat frustrating, as I'm forced to choose the road in general, a nearby address, or a cross-street.

I've got the detail turned all the way up in the PC application when I export my maps / trips.

Is there a way to get CP5 to actually find the addresses I'm looking for?

From my experience CP5 comes up with those alternatives when it doesn't find your precise address. Try looking it up in the planning mode map, and see if there's a spelling difference or if it indeed doesn't find it (which can of course happen)

If the address isn't available, e.g. the house number on the map but the street exists, then it will give you three options:-

- General Street (the street you entered)
- Nearby Address (the closest number it has)
- Cross-Street (roads that intersect)

Exactly - that's what's interesting - I can find the exact address when using the PC based software before I download the map data! Once it hits the PPC, I can no longer find the specific address...

same spelling? Any chance you can give us an example without revealing too much private information?

Sure.

7300 Saint Peters Church Road, Louisville, Ohio.

It's here, but not here or here.
