Location search with Location Picker still needs Google API. Is this correct?
Enclosed a screen, search in module ADS
In case of using the Location Picker for location fields the search by Location doesn't work. Because the search logic is based on address string (country, state. city. etc.) while the Location Picker provides only latitude/longitude coordinates for a map marker. So it is better to disable the Location field on search forms in this case.
Today we've released an update to Location Picker which now makes the search by location working. I.e. if a pointer is placed on a map on a search form then the search by a pointed city/town should be applied. We've decided to ignore a more granular location like zip, street and street_number so it applies a filter by city and upper only.
