Address Book Integration
How does GPSToday enhance my address book?
When installed, GPSToday geotags and places simultaneously on the map all contacts which have saved street addresses. Because the GPSToday map is very handy and instantly available without any load-time, it is many times easier to locate a contact by opening the map and browsing to the general location of the contact. Just one more tap brings up all communication options including phone call, sms, email etc.
Why do some of my contacts not show up?
Either the street address is incomplete, or it is not properly formatted. In some cases the presence of apartment/flat numbers can cause lookup errors. Also, the default country you have chosen in GPSToday settings is used while geolocating all contacts which don't have the country saved as part of the address.
What is the (w) and (h) after the name on the map markers?
(w) denotes that this location is saved in the address book as a work location for this contact, (h) stands for home. When a lat/lng geolocation is saved to a contact, it shows up with the (g) suffix.
How often is the map updated whenever I add new contacts or change some existing ones.
Changes should typically reflect within a few seconds.
I have too many contacts and it causes clutter on my map, what do I do?
Uncheck Menu->Options->Show Contacts.
How do I distinguish contact markers from all the other markers on the map?
Address book contacts show up as white markers on the map. Local Search results are grey, POI geoposts are yellowish/creamish, Mobile Users are green. The Weather-Info marker is brown. Find-Addresses are bluish.
I want to save the location of a contact as latitude/longitude instead of street address, is that possible?
Yes. Go to the exact location on the map, then select More->MapPosition->SaveToContact->GeoLocation. This location will then show up on the map with a (g) suffix. Note that now the preferred way to save geolocations is by creating a geopost rather than saving in address book.
