Yeah, this guy has some good points: http://mynokiablog.com/2012/02/11/weekend-watch-nokia-maps-suite-2-0-bet...
Maps 3.08 also only shows contacts with verified addresses.
I agree that this feature is not perfect. Ideally, the Contacts application should silently reverse geocode any address entered instead of this complicated process for verifying addresses.
Because this is a Drive app, we absolutely want to avoid complicated or unexpected ui for searching and finding contacts which do not have verified addresses.
I see your point :)
I agree, I have completely stopped using this feature because there is categorically no chance whatsoever that I am going to go-through and verify over 1200 contacts one by one.
Given that I only use a post-code for searching on Nokia Maps I cannot see why this cannot be taken from the home or business address fields of the contacts in the phonebook.
I agree, geo-location should be an automatic process for all contacts with addresses.
I must nonetheless say that this would not be ideal for me personally, because of
1) the non-uniform way of spelling Arabic words in English, and
2) the map information for Egypt being far from complete, which leads to overwriting address data with incorrect info when I add the geo-location to a contact.
Ok, sounds like there may be reasons for the validation process...
...instead could we have a toggle for 'Require Address Validation" - that simply would cover either need.
I hate to say it, but I'm afraid the trouble is with the contacts application (or how it interacts) and not with drive.. When I want to verify a contact address the contact application seems to ignore the address information available and just brings me to my current location. Which makes it really unpleasant to verify a contact location unless you happen to be there.
@Kharol, I agree with you. It does not even attempt to search an inputted address in Maps. That is quite impractical
