Hello,

When I enter "Writhlington, United Kingdom" to maps.live.com search then the correct destination is found.

When I call this:

map.Find(null,'Writhlington,United Kingdom',null,null,null,null,true,true,false,true,LocationResults);

Then I get completely different results - API tries to match similar sounding names but does not find the correct one.

Is there any way how can I get the same results as on maps.live.com

Thanks!

Re: Different results on Find method and maps.live.com

maps.live.com is using an improve geocoder. To get the new results on the API, you'll have to use the v6 API. map.Find(null,'Writhlington,United Kingdom'); returns the same result in v6 and maps.live.com.

However, that's currently, 1 limitation in the API. It will only use the new improved geocoder if the what parameter is empty. So, map.Find("pizza",'Writhlington,United Kingdom'); will end up using the old geocoder.

Derrick,

Thanks a lot! That explains that. I will migrate to v6.
