  • hey

    When searching for an adress/location and press map, add a knot, dot, pin or whatever to see where it is. At the moment to se exactly where is it the location you searched for is to add it into the waypoint or route function. frustratingSmile

  • I don't think I am really getting what you are saying.  For example, if I search for a chinese restaurantand it finds it, I can center the push pin then zoomin to see where it is.


    What did I miss on your comment?

  • i meant like this:


    first: if i enter an adress like unicorn str, las vegas, NV the live search finds it

    then when you press "map" you only get an overview map without knowing exactly where unicorn street is.

    the only way to find out where unicorn street in las vegas, you have to enter it onto "route" ans zoom in from there.

    on the "map" feature you don't get any exatly pinpoints where unicorn street is because the overview map shows half las vegas.

    So what i'dd like is some sort of "dot" in the "map" feature to show exactly where what you're searching for is. so you can zoom in on it.

  • Ok, now once you get the overview map, your location that you asked for is centered so press the center button to start the ZOOM function and start zooming in ... it will give you just what you want

  • The one thing I would improve in Live Search is the pass through to a proxy.

    I see the value in presenting faceted results, but the experience gets broken when i click through to an image or a file link only to be greeted with a "no supported application" (or similar) error.

    Also, give me some configurable issues, such as defaults, cache size, text only, mixed results, etc...

    I like Live Search though, a great product!

  • Great thoughts Mike.  The Live Search Team is continually working on improvements and I would expect it will get better and better.
