reverse geocoding provider also in the geocoding panel
« on: September 13, 2021, 05:10:18 PM »
I sometimes change the provider for the reverse geocoding.
I wonder if it would be possible to change this not only in the preferences but also in the panel where I do the reverse geocoding (like it is solved in the map panel - where I can select the map Provider directly).

Almost everything is possible. It all depends on how much work (aka money) I have to invest into changes or new features. And if it is worth it.
A change like this can take a day or two to implement (changing the app, tests, documentation, translations, ...)

Apparently no other user so far sees a need for this.
I doubt that many users switch geocoding providers often, or at all.

If you want to use HERE to reverse geocode while keeping your main geocode to something else - check out my Super GeoLocator App in the App Forum... I haven't used it in awhile since this functionality was added to the Main Program... but it may work still and provide you with a secondary provider without altering your primary.
