    That’s kind of curious. Can you provide me with the address and GPS coordinates you’re entering?

    Yes.
    This is the adress:
    Parc des Expositions
    Allée des Érables
    93420 Villepinte, Francia

    and this GPS coordinates:
    lat: 48.971471 long: 2.519619

    OK. So, while the address you’re providing matches what Google provides for the Parc des Expositions, the GPS coordinates don’t – if you look at the URL you provided earlier, the GPS coordinates there are

    lat: 48.9716117, long: 2.5141416

    While those differences are small, they could easily represent the difference you’re seeing on the calendar map.

    Best,

    Yeah, I know. That’s the problem.
    I tried every combination: filling only the address, filling only GPS coordinates (looked in the url of googlemaps or rightcliking on my point in the map choosing “What’s here ?”, I tried filling both fields with different combination on writing coordinates and address. I never get the same place.
    I’ve already tried those coordinates you indicated me. If you what to I can put them on so you can see they head my map on a different place. The point is that everything I try, I never get this:
    https://www.google.com/maps/place/Parc+des+Expositions/@48.971302,2.519592,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x47e61423545865ff:0x19d8add2537a716a?hl=it

    As you can see, there is a point nearby called CARTES. I even tried to put the adress of that place and din’t work.
    So what can I do?

    I wish I had a suggestion; I think that this has something to do with Google Places — and that the location you want is a Place point, rather than representative of an address, but I’m really not certain.
