Save Town Field Searches for Later Selection

Reported by: slam-er Owned by: cp15
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: gui/internal Version: git master
Severity: Keywords: Search, Towns, Streets, Type


When using the internal GUI I find it frustrating that I have to re-type in a town name in order to search for a street name. For example:

If I enter the Actions menu -> Search then type in "San Francisco" for city and then click on streets and start typing in my street name I find the street I think I want. I then click on the street to view it on the map and discover that it isn't the street I thought it was. So I then have go through the process of going to the city search field and typing in San Francisco again to pull up the search for streets again. Doing this a couple of times can be quite annoying especially for long city names.

It would be nice if there was an option that would either default to the previously used town in the search field or if it would store say 5 of the most recently seached town names so one could quickly select one of those items and then move on to searching the street names.

Or better yet, use the GPS position to figure out what city the user is in and set that as the default city to search city names in and just go straight to searching street names within the city.
