I would like to have the GPS also accept a written address such as 123 abc street, Neverland ZZ 54321
I do not want my end users to have to come up with their own GPS string as that would be very inconvenient for them. So any kind solution where you have this capability or there is an address converter to GPS string would be ideal
Have you checked out the Address Lookup Custom Node? While this does require a Google API Key, this could serve for what you’re looking for.
What you’re looking to do is called Geocoding. There are several services available (other than Google) that provide a tool to do this with an API.
I will, though, take your feedback to the engineering team and keep you updated with any information I learn!
