Online Help > Placemarks > Search


The application allows you to search placemarks using different ways:

  • From a large variety of coordinates;
  • By name, among all displayed placemarks;
  • By name, from online search services (like Nominatim and Google Maps) when an Internet connection is available.

How to search a place by name?

  • Tap on the Placemarks menu and on Search a location ;
  • Be sure that Search by name is selected;
  • Type the name of the place to search and tap on Search ;
  • Wait for the results to appear, which can take up to few seconds.

Results (if any) are sorted by distance from the current screen center location. The results that best match your search are listed in the Main results section, the other ones in the Other results section. You can:

  • Tap on any result to move the map on it and display it;
  • Tap Display all to display all results as a set of waypoints;
  • Tap Cancel to search for another name.

Results depend on the currently displayed map area. You can get more precise results by first displaying the map area you're interested in before searching for a location name.

How to search a place from its coordinates?

To find a location from its coordinates:

  • In the Search a location panel (see above), tap on the current input format ;
  • Choose the input format you need to search, for example Lat/Long (Deg) to search for a WGS84 (GPS) latitude and longitude coordinates in the decimal degrees format;
  • Input formats with a cloud icon require an active internet access;
  • If your format is not listed, you can tap on Import… to import it (more details here);
  • Fill the coordinate fields , like the latitude, the longitude and cardinal sectors, depending on the chosen format;
  • If you need to paste coordinates copied from somewhere else, tap on Single field (for copy/paste) to get a single text field in which you'll be able to paste your coordinates;
  • Tap Search to display the location.
