Knack for How to Use

In "Search from Map", products can be squeezed through the process in the order of (1) product category, (2) keyword and (3) coverage of the map.

In case where the product category selected in (1) and the products desired to be displayed do not coincide, the products desired cannot be displayed.

In case where keyword is input in (2)

The map in (2) changes to show the coverage with a scale so as to display all the relevant products. The product list also displays all the relevant products.

Even if the product category in (1) is changed, the keyword remains as it is. In case where squeezing products by keyword is unnecessary, empty the Input Box.

In case where the keyword is not entered in (2)

According to the scale and coverage of the map in (2), the products to be displayed may change. In the product list, those products located slightly excess the coverage are displayed.
In case where any product cannot be found, try to change the scale of the map, search with keyword, or some other means.

There are some products such as "Sailing Directions", "Tide Tables", etc. that cannot be searched on the map.
