BlackBerry Maps - handling of unit #

[ Edited ]

In BlackBerry maps, an address entered like this will always result in "Not Found" when doing "Go To Location":


Address:  207 - 231 Shearson Cr

City: Cambridge

State/Prov: ON


If you remove the spaces before and after the dash in the address, it finds the location properly.


Is this supposed to work this way?  Is there a fix?  We have an application that passes the address to the Maps application, so I guess we can work around this by parsing the address, but it would be nice if we didn't have to.
