Hi, when I tried to enter Praha for the street data, it gave me just about 
500 entries and there are many street names duplicated but maybe with 
different positions.
Do you think this is caused by the fact that OSM is opensource and therefore 
there are only so few streets there?
How can I add there my street for example? This one is not listed in the 
data generated.
Thanx for any info and for this great tool!
Tom, E60
