Support » Plugin: WP Store Locator » GPS position not matching with Google

  • Hello

    I noticed that if I copy the gps coordinates from google maps to my store page the position does not match.

    For example, this position
,7.4420328,18.96z/data=!4m12!1m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x22b5a1ff8854deba!2sConsorzio+Agrario+delle+province+del+Nord+Ovest!8m2!3d44.4251357!4d7.4418027!3m4!1s0x0:0x22b5a1ff8854deba!8m2!3d44.4251357!4d7.4418027?hl=it in google maps is located on 44.425140, 7.441781

    But, if I set these coordinates on my WP Store Locator shop page the placeholder is placed 240 meters before the exact point where I copied the coordinates from google maps.

    Anybody have the same issue? How i can fix this? Thank you.

    Not sure why this happens, and how to fix this. The data is simply returned by the Google Geocode API, so it should be the same.

    But even when I try to request the coordinates directly, I get coordinates that are slightly different ( geometry -> location ).

    edit: if you simply add the address details in the store locator, and click on the preview button on the right side then you always adjust the locations of the marker if necessary.
