Thanx Petr, now the streets can be found within offline address db.
But the problem wit 'unknown address' after long tap remains. Without internet connection no address :(

Hello!
I downloaded the new db version for Germany North (17.03.2016), but I still have trouble finding streets in Berlin. E.g. after choosing Berlin as city I try to look for Boxhagener Straße, Boxhagener Platz, Rhinstraße etc. but I don't get any results. Kurfürstendamm for instance is found.
Thank you in advance for looking into it.
Btw. this feature is a really nice one, keep up the good work!

@voldapet Thank you for creating Japan db. I've briefly confirmed that the search works by typing alphabetical character words and Japanese character words.

Hi,
thank you for testing. Today morning we've uploaded new databases on GD and for this reason weren't some files available. Unfortunately the "Unknown address" problem remains - the new  version of application is needed. So please wait for next beta. Sorry for that.

@TrulloF
Thank you for report. Well, it's the similar situation as with Stuttgart/Munchen. But Berlin is in OSM data tagged as "state" and our address DB generator does not recognize such city boundary. I guess that there will be the same problem with Bremen or Hamburg. We'll improve it. :) Thanks

Nice.

Thanks for testing
@gynta - sorting I need to discuss with menion. Sorting is good idea but we need to create probably custom sort mechanism. Simple alphabetical sorting isn't proper solution from my point of view. I mean the house numbers with letters: For example (1, 1A, 2, 11). But the strict alphabetical would be: 1, 2 , 11, 1A
- doubled "n" well that's complicated. I guess that we aren't able to offer such searching...

@balloni55 - Reverse returns always Germany? Would you please give me some screenshot where are shown the coordinates or place where you long tap on map?

Hyphen - I'm sorry that's my fault. I've been playing with regexp and trying different expression and finally I've put into the code wrong regexp. Well probably almost all special characters are ignored only hyphen isn't :( . New version of databases but also application is needed. Not solved right now.

alphabetical sorting is ok.
not perfect - but ok.

@balloni55
It's more on menion then me but do you use the latest beta? I guess that offline reverse geo is not used in your situation.  You should see "*" symbol in popup window that symbolize offline reverse geocoding.
