If the user only selected a country geoding was not working for me. Therefore I set "$q" to countrycode if empty.

I added a small fix to geocoding/google.inc in "google_geocode_location".

$q = _google_geocode_flatten($location);
if(empty($q)) {
 $q = $location['country']; 

$query = array(
    'key' => $key,
    'sensor' => 'false', // Required by TOS.
    'output' => 'xml',
    //'ll' => 0,
    //'spn' => 0,
    'gl' => $location['country'],
    'q' => $q, // $q goes here

Patch attached.

Title: Google Geocoding fix » Country is not added to address when using google geocoding
1.36 KB

Instead of checking the address after the call to _google_geocode_flatten() we should probably fix _google_geocode_flatten() itself.

This patch changes _google_geocode_flatten() to make it add the country to the address.
I also snuck in a little bit of code cleanup.

Can you test my patch for your use case?

The patch is against current cvs dev. Should apply to current dev download too.
Or you can manually apply to the 3.1 release if it doesn't apply cleanly.

The patch in #2 works for me.

My use case is the user enters just a country and no other details and the coords are geocoded from that.
