@energybill - Yes, I'm aware of that.
Those pulldown menus are un-intelligent. When you pick a state like "LA" it simply types that in the address box as "LA". Unfortunately that is sent to Google Maps and they decided when people type "LA" they mean "Los Angeles" not "Louisiana".
I'm working on a patch for that but I need to get 3.8.X stable first as there are hooks and filters I need to create the features necessary in the Enhanced Search add-on to do things like "Use explicit state names" on the state pulldown.
BTW, the other option is to type out state names instead of short names when entering location data. Type out "Indiana" instead of "IN" and it will work. A pain and non-standard so I'm hoping to get an Enhanced Search update out to accommodate this without "long hand" state names.
