use the above link to make a mapchunk you want and save it to your phone, but yes i fully agree NAVIT's method for finding an address is quite poor, narrowing down an address from name/street no etc often is quite frustrating as it assumes youve done some research beforehand and know where your going, in reality id want to enter a postcode/zip first then narrow down street/house no afterwards.
thats pretty much the only bad mark i have against navit, shame its quite an important thing, but still the navigation itsself works amazingly well, even the robotic sounding voice is perfectly acceptable, ive also tried the google/other alternatives on android phones and even my paired ipad and didnt really like those, some of them imho try too hard, or offer far too much or like Sygic/Waze ended up just being a pain to operate/setup.
