Address Search not working

marc shared this problem 6 years ago
Solved

Hi there, first of all, thank you for this great app.


Ich have a problem with the address search when i tap an hold on a map on my Galaxy Tab P1000 with google as searchprovider (Mapquest works but is not as good as google). I use the app also on my Defy with the same settings an it works without problems. What might be wrong?


Thanks for your help, Marc

ok marc. Then this is weird. Google apps are needed for this feature so it should work for you. Internet is probably also enabled right? (should be when mapquest works for you)


hmm last thing. Aren`t you using some firewall that blocks internet communication? Because MapQuest system use locus directly. But google search is used by Google app. So Locus call Google apps, these search online for address and return result to Locus. So not Locus, but some Google servise is connecting to internet.


If this also will not be your case, then I`ll need some log, if there isn`t any error on background

I have the same problem. If I search for an address and then select

something out of the proposal list. Then it does not take the selected

address but some other far away, also if i do not choose from this list. this can be reproduced but the result is somehow changing but does not show the correct address (https://www.google.de/maps/place/Obere+G.,+91056+Erlangen/@49.5896545,10.9728579,14z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x47a1f8a8e3f877d7:0x6f76023f83445249)


(search for "obere gasse 19" in germany/bavaria and select the list entry for "Erlangen". The result is somewhere 290km away in a region where i do not have a map for installed. sometimes it is near erlangen but the wrong address (not the one i selected)

I have a samsung galaxy note (gt-N7000) with android 4.0.4 (rooted) and original google applications. installing or deinstalling or re-installing of google apps did not work for me.
