    Ausrufezeichen Offline Address Search Still Incomplete

    Hi Support Team,

    Thanks for the 2.5.0 update.

    However, I notice that offline address search remains far from complete with lots of missing data as checked for the UK map. As it makes offline address search of little use, will this be solved anytime soon? This broken feature is a deal breaker for me.

    By "lots of missing data as checked for the UK map" - do you mean that there is data in the OSM UK map which is not visible through the SDK?

    Hi, thanks for your message and for getting back to me. Yes, sorry I meant that the OSM data is clearly there on the map but it isn't being exposed by the SDK via the offline address search facility. It would be good if this issue could be resolved. Is this something being looked at?

    If the data was added after 13.04.2015, than the new data would be available when a new SDK will be released.
    Please give us some examples and we will make sure to check them when will have some fresh map data.

    This applies to all data and I referred to this issue in this thread a few months ago: http://forum.skobbler.com/showthread...offline-search and it remains unresolved. Common streets fail to appear for instance for a search of London. The number of streets returned are little and London has thousands of streets plus only a small number appear in search for streets beginning with A, B or C. None for the rest of the alphabet.

    I tested: 4,469 streets returned for London in SDK 2.5.0. Less than for 2.4.0 = 4,480 streets.

    Hi guys,

    Sorry, just wondered what your thoughts are and will the offline search be corrected?

    Thanks

    Hi peyesdev,

    We are planning a major refactoring to address the lack of data, but this won't be publicly available this year.
    As for those 11 addresses that are missing-it's possible to have been deleted from OSM since December 2014 (2.4 SDK is using the map data available until then) Do you have some specific examples so that we can check?

    Thank you,
    Adela

    Hello,

    Examples of common London streets do not come up in the address search namely: Oxford Street, Bond Street, Piccadilly, Park Lane, and many more. Please can you check. So does that mean no resolution of this issue until next year?

    Thanks.

    I'm afraid yes. But we will keep you posted in case we've got some good news.
