#1208 new defect/bug

location search returns duplicated entries, one working, one not

Reported by: christoph thielecke Owned by: cp15
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: gui/gtk Version: git master
Severity: normal Keywords: location search, doubled result


When searching for a target on settings - action - location:

  1. enter the City (e.g. "Wernigerode" from Germany)
  2. I got 2 exact same result entries (see screen shot)
  3. - when I select the first one, choose "Streets", enter something: nothing
    • when I select the second one, choose "Streets", enter something: got results (as expected)

I use latest svn (now: 5770)

duplicated result on city search

This could also be a problem with the map you use. Where and when did you download the map?

I would say this is result of multiple maps being active at the same time.

The very first entry (without zipcode) seems to come from a years old map which had no administrative divisions info for Germany.

Two following results which look identical are probably come from two other maps, which have different coverage areas. We store city indexes in high level tiles, so you get lots of city data outside of normal coverage area. But street and house data is stored in low level tiles, so your street search is not working when you select a city outside of the map coverage area.

For now, there's no solution besides keeping activated only one map at a time. Please note, you may get other unexpected results when more than one map is enabled at a time, including excessive navigational messages, performance issues.

I'd advise to download whole region of interest as a single map file rather than splitting it into pieces.
