Navigation able to enter POI names?

Hey All:

I picked up my e92 last week and drove it across Germany and now in Paris. While playing with the Nav, I noticed that I could not enter Point of Interests names (ie, maybe I want to search for a restaurant name "Mortons") as I can with other GPS systems. Is it me who can't find out how, or is this feature buried in some iDrive menu?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That's the way it is...you can only browse by genre. It's pretty stupid and I hate it. Another thing I hate is when you actually narrow it down enough, it doesn't display the address of the all the places listed. This is a problem when, say, there are more than one 24 hour fitness in the same city.
