    Addresses like "16 A Ave" not recognized

    I've got a problem with Mappoint mapping addresses like "xyz 16 A Ave". It'll usually get lost trying to find a street called A Ave. I haven't found a way yet to convince it to find the address I tell it to.

    Also, when you enter an address complete with City, Province and Postal Code, why does MapPoint still offer places in other cities, provinces and in postal codes thousands of miles away? Any way to convince it to fall back to just postal code mapping in this case? It seems pretty obvious to me that even if you can't find the exact street address, going to the postal code would be a reasonable alternative, rather than going to all kinds of lengths to find that exact street address in a different city.

    Any suggestions would be hugely welcomed! Thanks!!!

    from my experiance at least the country has to be the right one or it finds abiginous places But finding countrty + zip or city is always good result.
