    Mappoint 2010 Canada Address Searches - why NO WORKY ???

    Microsoft says that 2010 North America fully supports the US and Canada.
    I can see Canada Cities and Streets but I cannot do an address search nor can I even do a Street search. For example, Dundas St, Toronto will respond with "Toronto Airport", etc. Just major places in Canada . . . not streets or addresses.

    What in the world is the problem here ?

    I searched in MapPoint 2011 for Dundas St, Toronto and found that I had to specify the country in the search dialog box - then it went to the right spot.

    What language is your operating system? A few users have reported difficulties searching for Canadian addresses, and a couple of solutions were posted here (5 page long discussion).

    That was it - duhhhh, I fell silly now.
    The country defaults to United States - which for some reason I simply did not notice.
    Thanks a heap !!
