I have had a similar experience, in which, as I recall, something was delivered to the back porch (which is on the side street) with a bogus address on that street. My wife and I once spent some time searching Google maps for places we lived in the past, and it showed a few bogus addresses, which Google seemed to generate.I live on a corner and my address is on the street to the left. There is a large frontage on the street to the right and when in my office at the back I am physically closer to that street. When I consult Dark Sky in my office it creates an address that does not exist to represent my location.
Perhaps. What's easier for humans to use? "span.media.gates" or "38.897422, -77.036558"?
Maybe we could start using sequences of emoji.
But would 💩.💩.💩.💩 be assigned to 37°19'54.55" N 122°01'52.25" W or to 38.897422, -77.036558?
DuckDuckGo said:DuckDuckGo Expands Use of Apple Maps for Enhanced Search With the Same Commitment to Privacy
In our quest to provide the best experience for local searches, earlier this year we announced that we're now using Apple's MapKit JS framework to power our mapping features. Since then, we've been continually working hard on further enhancements and we're excited today to show you some new improvements.
Whereas previously each new map-related search required returning to a regular DuckDuckGo Search page, now it's possible to stay in our expanded map view where you can refine local searches instantly. This is useful for limiting generic searches like "restaurants" to a specific area. Similarly, moving around the map or zooming in and out will enable you to update your search to include places within the field of view. For example, try a query such as "coffee shops" and zoom in on the map to refine your search.
I got the app, and it seems that GPS isn't working. I have no satellites, even outside with a clear sky (apart from fog and cloud), so all my location is done with WiFi and Bluetooth, which explains the poor performance. Is there a way to turn GPS on or off, or is this a dead chip or similar?
I had a similar problem with an iPhone 6 about seven months ago. GPS performance was becoming increasingly poor with maps failing to update. Sometimes it worked, but more often it did not.A different issue with my iPhone 7, which is just over two years old: I noticed last winter that sometimes the GPS position would not be updated for a while ...
Does the refurbished iPhone 7 you just bought work correctly for GPS where the other one doesn't?I decided to replace the iPhone 7 with a refurbished one, as I can't justify spending so much for a newer model when my current phone does all I need (apart from GPS, of course). Hopefully it will last another 2-3 years before I buy another new one.
I haven't yet received the new phone, so can't answer that yet.Does the refurbished iPhone 7 you just bought work correctly for GPS where the other one doesn't?
I'll try that once I get the new phone. If it works, at least I'll get a better price for the old one! There's also a 14-day return window if the new one doesn't work properly.Have you tried a complete erase and reinstall on the older iPhone 7?
