Search bar on

I'm pleased to announce a new feature on a search bar to find places and points of interests like hotels, hospitals, restaurants or convenience shops.

To facilitate the search, the search bar implements auto-completion: Start typing the name of any place or point of interest, and a drop-down menu suggests available places or points containing this name. A small icon in front of the name indicates if it's a village, restaurant, hotel etc. The icons corresponds in most (!) cases to the map symbols. Villages, towns and cities are the exception, since places have a label but no icon on the map. The icons for places used in the drop-down menu look as follows:




See the following screenshots:

Works also in Lao

A map marker highlights the found place:

As always: feedback is highly appreciated!
