Geo Intent Label not showing in Google Maps App

Tags: , , , ,



Since my Google Maps app updated recently, now version 10.11.1, the following code does not show the label as expected, documented, and previously working:

  val intent = Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("geo:38.8951,100.0364?q=38.8951,100.0364(foo)")).setPackage("com.google.android.apps.maps")
  if (intent.resolveActivity(packageManager) == null) {
    intent.setPackage(null)
  }
  startActivity(intent)

And neither does this version (with 0,0 immediately after geo:):

  val intent = Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("geo:0,0?q=38.8951,100.0364(foo)")).setPackage("com.google.android.apps.maps")
  if (intent.resolveActivity(packageManager) == null) {
    intent.setPackage(null)
  }
  startActivity(intent)

Neither does the example code in the official documentation show a label:

// Display a label at the location of Google's Sydney office
Uri gmmIntentUri = Uri.parse("geo:0,0?q=-33.8666,151.1957(Google+Sydney)");
Intent mapIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, gmmIntentUri);
mapIntent.setPackage("com.google.android.apps.maps");
startActivity(mapIntent);

no "Google Sydney" label on Moto G5

Answer

No solution still even with latest map update 10.12.1 the label still does not show even if the documentation still says it should I’ve created an issue on Google’s Issue tracker: https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/129726279

hopefully we’ll have some information shortly.
