Search address without tap and hold?
« on: November 06, 2021, 10:19:18 »
I turned off the "search address by tap and hold" option because I triggered it often involuntarily. But I can't find another way to invoke the same feature. It would be convenient if I could search for adress at the crosshair by click of a button, or similar. Is it possible somehow?

At present long-tap is either ignored, or displays the address (settings > controlling > tap & hold. I use the latter. But a more general system could be long-tap > context menu > whole range of menu options, not just address.

Ok. But my problem is the opposite. I trigger tap and hold by mistake when I move around on the map. So I turn it off.  But once in a while I want to bring up the address, and there seems to not be any other way. It would be useful if a button could trigger this and not just a gesture. Just like you can zoom with gesture or with buttons for example.

Only if you are a Tasker nerd - that's possible. Send latlon to a Tasker script, retrieve address from Latlon (there's different APIs that can be used, I prefer nominatim osm), display/copy/... it. I'm doing numerous of such things but it's hard to share, my infrastructure grew, is a bit complex.
If you are a nerd in that field, you'd find necessary scripts in r/tasker.

This is really interesting topic.
We already have prepared a server-side feature for creating a completely new "long click" experience: "What is here", where should be united address search + search in nearest interesting poi categories.
This brings me close to removing this "disable long click" option.

And here comes a question: how does this happen @claesh1 that you trigger long click by accident? The slow device with lags? How we may solve this? Increase time necessary to trigger "long click" may help here?

Even in the search for online adresses we have the tick box: search around cursor location. Maybe some wildcard in the search field could give the adress of the location.

On second thought: we normally hike with zoom level 16. Two taps up to level 18 gives me readable street names. So what is the real problem/question? For sharing your location there are other options.
