LIGHTROOM Map module - allow drag to reposition and to see all Google Maps data

Hi There,

While the map module is a great idea (for certain types of jobs) it's not that intuitive - for example:

1.
You can't seem to reposition locations by dragging them - in fact, you can't reposition them at all right?

2.
You can't see all the data contained in google maps - places of interest, restaurant or hotel names etc.

This results in a more time-consuming workflow:

1.
I'm currently having to switch between Google Maps and Lightroom to see all the data and find locations

2.
I'm having to move locations by first removing the GPS coordinates and re-applying them. I only see the "Delete GPS co-ordinates" option which seems counter-intuitive when all you want to do is reposition them - plus there are more clicks doing it that way.

Cheers

You can reposition a location pin by dragging it, but make sure you've unlocked "Locked Markers":
