    Positions of House Numbers

    I've just received a query from a long-standing customer:

    Have you noticed that Mappoint clearly knows which side of a street a
    property is on, but does not locate it in that place when you do an Import
    Data ( and the same via gxmap ). All pushpins, and gxmap located data,
    ends up down the middle of the street. But if you just move the cursor up
    and down the left/right side of the street you can see the correct
    location of all the property.

    Have you noticed this? Is it to be expected? I assume it happens
    everywhere .... I'm focussing on an area of Birmingham, Maytree Close, odd
    numbers down the right, postcode B37 5EA
    even numbers down left, postcode B37 5ED


    I can see the houses by clicking just to the left or just to the write of Maytree Close. When I try a "Find" it only finds "B37 5" and puts a pushpin in the middle of Maytree Close.

    Has anyone else had problems with MapPoint locating specific houses in the middle of the streets? Any solutions?

    When I do a FindAddressResults, and place a pushpin at the location returned, it always puts it in the middle of the street. I don't want this. I need it to be on the side of the street that it shoud be. Does anyone know how to remedy this?

    Thanks,

    Stu
