I have installed two different OSM Routable maps for my area on to my Oregon 450. WHen I attempt to do an address search, the first prompt is to select state. In every case, the search turns up no results so I cannot continue entering the address. I have tried spelling out the name of the state, using the standard two character abbreviation, and all combinations of upper case, mixed case and lower case spellings. In every case, I cannot get past the select state screen. Any help you can provide will be appreciated. Thank you.

here you can find a direct link for a OSM Garmin map with full adress functionality, created by OSM user"railrun": Here is the discussion towards the problem:

For info, here's the mkgmap list discussion:

(I don't know about you, but Martin's English is far better than my or Google Translate's German!)

and here's the commit:

So version 2042 and above of mkgmap should have the fix in it, allowing you to create a map of your area rather than Martin's. The latest from the mkgmap download area is mkgmap-r2048.
