In my contact manager "DW contact" i tap on an existing address like this



Bachstraße 5 69121 Heidelberg

Deutschland

In the next step i'm presented with several apps to open the address with.

When selecting TomTom it opens the address and starts the navigation to it.

When selecting Locus it does not show the address, it open the "search address menu" and i have to select an online service like google to search for the address again.

This bahaviour is strange: i do not want to search the address again, i want to show it at once on the map. How could i acheve that?

Hi,

Locus can't visualise an address on its own - it uses third party services for this task. Therefore it places address in its "search" feature. You don't have to select search service - Google is usually set as default - just tap the search button and Locus shows the addres on map.

Hi,

yes, displaying address selected in system contact manager works online only in Locus. Offline addresses are searched a different way.
