Search a location

Post by alexlong » Tue Feb 11, 2020 8:45 pm

Is it possible to add additional search engines in the Placemarks → Search a location → Location name section?
As far as I understand the application uses the following search engines – OSM, Google.
Is it possible to use some more such as Yandex, Wikimapia and others.
I think in this case it would be good to add a new item in the general Settings, something like Search engines with the list of the available engines so that users could select the desired engines checking them.

Hi Alex,
Yes right now the application uses Nominatim and Google Places.
I have plan to add more engines for a long time, especially Geonames (but of course also other), but as usual it's the lack of time...
A new section in the app settings is a good idea.
I've added it in the waiting list.
