    If you believe Garmin [i don't!], the reason is that BC was designed 'from the ground up' as a completely different software and it was necessary to 'abandon' MS entirely. So i guess in that sense they didn't trash that piece of code, they just couldn't incorporate the old code into the 'new' software and had to rewrite everything ... that's if you believe them. I don't on balance, but I can't prove it. So without access to the source codes who can prove or disprove that the particular code for MS search method could be added into BC? I guess nobody will ever know anyway except a very elite few in Garmin software division, and as imo they will never release the original source code for MS regardless of the fact that it's an abandoned orphan sw, and they'll not do that with BC either obviously. So no one else has the opportunity to check. The point is that even assuming it is true that the particular code string couldn't be transplanted from MS to BC, the new code could still have been written in such a way that allowed the search method to be the same as MS or at least similar and workable surely? They either chose (i) not to; [why?] or (ii) stuffed up and haven't fixed it; [again ..why?] or (iii) don't know how to fix it [unlikely]. Safe to assume imo that it's (ii) and in spite of the plethora of complaints they simply can't be bothered. Call me cynical ....
