At a recent flight in Polen, I was diverted to waypoint 'LUXAL' during flight. Due to turbulent weather, difficult communication and very limited airspace/time to navigate within it would have been nice if options that would fit the search criteria would be a bit more intelligent. LUXAL does not appear as a waypoint until you have typed the the full name dispite it should be evident (based on distance) when either LU or LUX has been entered.
During flight, I pushed the SD icon (top left), pressed 'Direct to' & 'Find':
Typing L - gives 25-28 options, none is LUXAL
Typing LU - gives 1-2 options, none is LUXAL
Typing LUX - gives 1-4 options, none is LUXAL
Typing LUXA - gives 0 options, none is LUXAL (obviously) 
Typing LUXAL - gives 1 (correct) option

This contributes to unnecessary high mental workload.
Please make it more logical/intelligent.

I had this issue as well, the search engine should be a little bit more "intellegent". ATC in countries like Poland or Slovakia likes to give VFR traffic directs to ATS-waypoints in CAS (just like IFR traffic), so it would be very usefull if this could be optimized.

True, I got that ... but in turbulent air with a Polish operator hard to read and diversion instructions to be implemented immediately ... I prefer typing instead trying to visually find it on the map.
