    There is a mention in the firmware release that, "The Navigation app has been improved to provide better search results...".

    I've been frustrated with the Nav search results and have written it off given that I live in Canada. When I search for an address like 234 25 Avenue SW I get a bunch of search results in North America but none of them near my City. If I add "Calgary" to the address like this, "234 25 Avenue SW Calgary" it works perfectly!

    I was expecting that this statement in the updated 6.2 firmware would recommend addresses locally first - then search far and wide for other alternatives. I guess not. Here is a screen shot of what I am talking about.

    Actually I found it very funny that it found so many McDonald's - if you scroll down there were about a dozen results for McDonald's!
