ovi nav problem
 
I am very happy with ovi nav but I ran into a problem with usability. I don't know if its the app or me.

I found that I really had to look around to enter a destination street address. The search would find anything close to the address and I finally was able to enter it thru history. Am I missing something here?

Is it just that the app assumes that if the internet search fails the location doesn't exist? It did work fine when I entered it thru history.

Should I guess there will be no way for me to enter actual GPS coordinates?

TIA, Jeff

Do you have the maps preloaded? I found that searching, for example, 'Station Street, Nottingham' worked perfectly.

I have found if online search does not find anything i have to go into settings and internet set it to offline then do the search again then it usually finds it.
