    Thanks for feedback. Yes this is true and so for many / most find methods on the map. I set Altitude always to 1 to get good results.

    It is more efficient that increasing the altitude, however it is slow, specially if you have a rather large circle and wants to check many points. I have used this technique in NT services that does not have human interface, so no problem if program is busy for sime seconds.

    If you need it in C# I can copy/past the code also, have it somewhere...
