    55Another reason is that some POIs ( eg, National Parks or landscape features ) are literally in the middle of nowhere, hundreds of miles away from the nearest town. The town search feature won't work then. The only way to find it is to go to the approximate area, and search in ever-increasing distance till it shows up.

    7 Speaking as a regular user of GPSr units while walking around strange cities and driving on unfamiliar roads, I can definitely see myself searching for POIs for 100, 200, or even 400km away (which is what I do on my Garmin). But I doubt I'll be searching for POIs more than 1000km away. To me, the GPS should support distances that I can drive comfortably.

For me, it's about 600-700km.

    99With the search feature, Navit's usability is approaching that of commercial units. I've been mucking around with the navit.xml file and bookmark.txt files to make it even better. I've been using Navit in place of my Garmin, and it's certainly a viable replacement even at this point.
