Greetings Haraldr (strange personal email address you go there ...)
It was posted to the list that full addresses with street names and numbers
and phone numbers are already required of from Official events.
My only guess at this point is that you are hitting a lot of unofficial
events, those which are not required to have this information. :)
Now GPS requests, those can be made directly here. Many on this list have
the GPS locator codes for various event sites. Those are not required of in
the publication of any event.
It is nice to have but it is easier to just ask for them here on the list,
many do that already. :)
Every software has its kinks in that department too. :D

Greetings from another relative newcomer to Ansteorra,
Replying publicly so that future event staff will hear my request as well...
May I also suggest encouraging
people to use street numbers and street names that resolve in the various
mapping software and commonly used
GPS navigation systems.
Most events I've attended in this kingdom I've had to guess and search to
find something I could enter into
the GPS systems in my vehicles to guide me on my way around this new, to me,
kingdom. I know that some
kingdoms have a requirement that to be 'official' the event needs to have a
street address or state 'no street
address'. But even most of those events always had an actual street address
when you drove out there with a
GPS system :)
Thanks for listening,
