Include street address when sharing points.

Gene Imes shared this idea 10 years ago

From time to time my daughter or wife will call from another city and ask If I know a good restaurant to eat where they are. Usually I do, so I share a point I have saved in Locus. However these points have for location Lat/Long coordinates. To my wife and daughter Lat/Long are incomprehensible. To send the stored street address would be ideal.

I like it.


Also other info of a POI would be great (email/phone/url, or even attachment?!).

I would appreciate if the menu for selecting information about the POI can be enriched by all fields available in the POI. It would be great if the written information could have a automatic linebreak like:


Name: Brücke über Gäubahn

Koordinaten: N 48°45.523' E 09°07.565

Beschreibung: Hier fahren manchmal Dampfloks

Höhe: 407 m

Adresse: Tunnel Gäubahn, 70199 Stuttgart, Deutschland

Because in point edit screen, the address consist of 5 fields, copying it is much more cumbersome than other fields like URL: You need to select, copy, switch app, paste, add line break, switch app and repeat 5 times :-(

Hence +1 for having whole address in "+" button of share menu. I'd also welcome if all user editable fields of edit point screen would appear here, see e.g. also https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/24667-share-add-field-description but address is IMHO the most cumbersome.
Hence, additionally, it would be great to have "long tap" as interaction pattern for "copy to clipboard" on the address like we already know from coordinates – which is also 2 to 6 fields (depends on coordinate format) in edit mode, so cumbersome to copy manually.0c38582915f822a8e34c0ed903f1cc62

Hi guys,

in the next Locus Map 4 version will be following changes

- option to add "address" when sharing point as text (also based on this idea)

- long click on the address in the point detail to copy content to the clipboard

In v3.65.1, in share dialog, pressing plus button does not offer address despite being in release notes for v3.65.0, and long tap on address does not trigger anything as expected (it's not in release notes).


In v4.14.1, long tap on address works i.e. copies the content of my point's address fields, pressing plus button lists description and address as options, description works fine 🙂 but address is always greyed out and not doing anything 😥 I tried with several points; some were created by saving LoPoints, others completely manually. Any tip how to get it working?
