Hello! I’m entering in GPS coordinates in a new map as well as adding several POI on the map, but whenever I enter the coordinates, they change to the closest physical address. Is there a way that I can change the coding so that I can enter gps coordinates without it changing to the address?
I’m not sure I understand. Usually if you edit a map and add a POI with coordinates like “-32,22” the plugin will keep those coordinates in the POI. They’re converted to an address only when you request driving directions.
What coordinates are you entering? And where do you see it changing to a street address?
I’m entering coordinates such as 45.480564541633 -122.630691007179, which is in a field. After hitting enter, the POI changes to the address most closely associated to this gps point. I can easily drop a marker, which then shows and retains the lat/long coordinates, but that’s not the ideal behavior.
If so: try configuring custom fields for lat/lng instead of (or in addition to) address in the MapPress settings. If you specify a lat and lng value, the plugin won’t geocode but it will use any value in the ‘address’ field.
Thanks for the example, I think I see the problem now: there’s no comma between the latitude and longitude. If they’re not separated with a comma, the entry is treated as an address and gets (reverse) geocoded.
To keep the original coordinates, try entering it like this: 45.480238, -122.631310
