LoPoints Search: Cant find a Toilet :-(
« on: October 01, 2020, 13:11:35 »
If I try to find a public toilet via the Openandromaps LoPoints, I only see those that have been given a name by the OSM mapper.

But many public toilets in the OSM are only mapped as "WC" without a name.

The problem is, you cannot search for this "WC" in Locus LoPoints Search. The search requires at least 3 letters.
One option to solve the problem would be to rename "WC" to something longer (I don't really like that).
Another option would be to change the default "at least 3 letters" to 2!

Hope to find a solution soon  ;)

But equally, to search you need the name of the toilet.
What you can do is go to LoPoints in the menu, scroll down and tap on Public Services to expand that category, then tap on Toilets. You can then either "show on map" (top right) or simply go to the nearest!
