Android version now offers the native keyboard for search. Check if this work with the swype (or similar) mode of input, and repair or improve if it doesn't work (well).
Don't know if swype keyboard can be provided with a custom vocabulary (IIRC I tried to look this up and it seemed we can't do that), but if it could, we could maybe have GpsMid use the name database as the vocabulary so swype would match to real names.
If swype doesn't work with the auto-complete incremental search, maybe do some kind of auto-switch to a text input field for a fulltext search.
