does the Directory plugin seriously not have the capability of geo search?

Seems from threads the Directory plugin is not capable of geo searching:
ie just endless listings so anything from anywhere.?
eg: Cannot find all X located in area T

and further the Custom fields are not searchable..

Really folks???
If you can add as many custom fields as you like but NOT find them what is the point..?

What directory or listing cannot pinpoint geo location..

Please advise if I am missing something??? like relevance here.
