    Less Address Accuracy Needed(!)

    I've been having a look at the reverse geo-coding example here:

    http://www.mp2kmag.com/articles.asp?ArticleID=50

    While it works very well most of the time, it does sometimes fail to find an address in rural locations. Is there any way I can ask for the nearest town, rather than a full address?

    When it finds an address, I get something like: "My Road, Newtown, RB4 2".

    For my needs, something like: 'Newtown, RB4'. Would be plenty of accuracy.

    Is it possible to specify the accuracy of the address when searching?

    Why not before you return the address, remove the first comma and everything before it, I've had to do that to get rid of the house numbers on some streets returned

    I could - provided that an address is always returned, which it isn't. I wan't to reduce the 'quality' of the address search, so MapPoint will always have a result to return.
