Hi,


the new search feature (v4.17.0) broke the possibility to share a point from Google maps to locus.

Thanks for creating the topic Wolfgang. I mentioned the bug in the Online Search (forum) topic (twice) but got no response.

I am not able any more on both of my devices - that's why I opened this thread. I don't know how you do it? I just click on share in Google maps and choose locus as target. Then locus opens and only shows my last manual search entries.

It's a very import function for me - because I need the functionality of Google Maps and then I want to navigate with locus.

Maybe, but It was working, so I think it's a bug. Most users aren't going to workaround this bug with Tasker, and while cycle touring for the next month I have more useful things to do too ;-)

Hello,

thank you for the feedback, we are currently working on a fix.

Have a nice day.

With 4.18.2 came a fix - but it's only partly fixed.

E.g. if I search in Google Maps for "Lange Strasse 17, 72336 Balingen" and then share this with Locus Map. Then Locus Map only get's the search string "Lange Strasse 17" that's it. This does not work, because this street exists in many German cities.

Hi Wolfgang,

thank you for your report. We improved sharing from Google Maps even more and also your case should be working in the next release version.
