I was working with a GPS user today in Carlsbad, California.  She wanted to
search for the restaurant Carl's Jr.  So our search for "carls" turned up
every restaurant in her city, because apparently the search looks at every
field, not just the restaurant name.  So I was thinking that it would be
cool if you could specify the search field, i.e., the name of the
restaurant.  And that got me thinking that if you could specify the name
field, you could also specify the address field, which would allow you to
search only the street you are on.  Is there any way to do this already, or
might it be a possible future feature?
