I feel that the Segment Search utility needs improving. This is why: There is one search field "Segment Name or Location". In trying to search for a local segment I get over 300 pages of results. For example: a segment with the name containing "Spirit Loop" in the location of "Fairmont Hot Springs, BC, Canada" this gives me over 300 pages of results from around the world. That really is of no use! If I were able to specify the 'Location or Place' in one field, and it would only list those segments in "Fairmont Hot Springs, BC, Canada", and then in a second field give the segment name/part name/name including... "Spirit Loop", I might get around 10 results, maybe less, if the search engine was truly limiting to those criteria. In that case, the utility is of use to me. As it is, after then engine has performed the search it is still like looking for a needle in a haystack.... hardly a useful search utility!

I’ve only used that tool once or twice, and it’s been so frustrating I gave up on it. Definitely needs some love, starting with a separate field for the location.

I agree 100%. The search function is basically useless as is. Needs segment name and location fields to function properly.

I came here to request the same. The search function isn’t too useful right now without a search by location OR having the current search field include the location as part of the data searched against.
