Enter coordinate yanking

Recommended Posts

When I enter a coordinate like N 037° 00.000', W 121° 30.000' in the search field, a pin is dropped but the map view zooms to somewhere in the North Atlantic. I'd expect the focus to be on the pin.

I'm running into similar problems. I've copied coordinates from an email, manually typed coordinates, and also dropped a pin in cachly and selected copy coordinates dates; after which I pasted into cachly search. Cachly responds by dropping a pin about 20 miles away.

What device are you using? Does this happen every time you search for coordinates?

iPhone 6 IOS 10.2.1

it appears to happen every time

I believe it worked prior to today. Restarted phone.

bere's an example. It appears after pasting, the coordinates are transposed.

what I pasted: 

N 029° 48.794', W 095° 23.668'

copied coordinates from cachly pin:

N 029° 48.794', W 095° 23.668'

location of pin in photo is wrong location.

 

inrestarted my phone, then I pasted different coordinates, and pin is dropped in the wrong area (same area as the screen shot)

Cachly uses an iOS/Apple API to get the pin location from coordinates. I have a feeling something has changed on their end.

In 2.1 we will be doing our own coordinate parsing so there will be no issues affecting the placement.

Homecountry The Netherlands but getting random pins in Belgium and Germany

This issue is fixed in our upcoming 3.0 version. :)
