Searching for street names on OSM maps doesn't work

Description

On OSM maps I have to find the street on the map myself, in order to set the destination. It'd nice to be able to type it in instead, and have navit find it for me.

There is of course the problem that the same street name exist in many places, and OSM don't usually have any information about postcodes or regions. Still, the names could be shown in a list, along with the name of the city/town/village/suburb closest to the road geographically. People usually know if the look for a road in/near Trondheim or Oslo.

When there are several roads with the same name in the same city, chances are that it is one road that forks or is divided due to traffic restrictions. Consider zooming so all segments are visible, and highlight them so the user can choose a destination.

OSM does not currently have house numbers. So the best we can do is to lead the driver to the street, and then consider the mission accomplished.

Work on search is in progress. But it won't be easy to fix the shortfalls of osm within navit.
