There is already a extension like that

Good work though :+1:

I have used that extension mate, it throws errors & also don’t provide the correct location details of the given Lat & Lng. In this extension i have used google maps reverse api logic to provide the actual address of the given values.

Hi
I’m curious as to know how this is different from the Address block the Location Sensor component has.
Does the precision of the address as fetched from the extension differ from the built-in component in any way?

Hey @Vishwas you are absolutely right, the extension is totally different from the built-in component.Actually i found that the built-in component is not returning the exact address [ sometimes ] of the given lat & lng so i used, reverseGeocode method of google map to get the exact address of given lat & lng.

@Vishwas Kodular built in component should have some extra block to set latitude and longitude. As it only returns adress of current latitude and longitude.

Also I want to say that this two extension and the built-in coponent all of them uses the same thing GeoCoding api so all af them works same and sometimes returns wrong infos.

Try this - lat=37.95111 long=23.71431 . It returns Turkey but the actual location is Greece

I’m not entirely sure we would want to implement that, considering the component is a “sensor”. It makes sense for a sensor to show data about what it’s sensing, and not give output based on custom user input. Adding such blocks would mean the component would no longer be a sensor.
It makes more sense for such a component to be in the Utilities category, but since such a new component will have only two/three blocks, limited functionality, and a small use-case, I think it’s best to leave this to the extension developers.

Please suggest me if i should add or remove blocks in this extension.
