If Kigali in Rwanda is unknown (and it is not one of the towns in Rwanda that have two names, unlike Ruhengeri/Musanze, for example), any idea what i should be calling it to be able to tag photos there?

Try again? If I zoom in on the map, I see Kigali appearing as one of the first two cities in Rwanda, so it's definitely in the database, and if I go the autocomplete way, it appears as the top-most option as soon as I've typed "Ki" (on the map) or "Kig" (in the photo edit screen).

Ah, Ok, finally fixed it guessing.

Autofill doesn't work - it rarely does in Africa on slow connection speeds - and I had been trying Kigali (not accepted) and Kigali, Rwanda (not accepted). It was the dratted province name i needed, so when i put Kigali, Kigali, Rwanda, it was ok

That actually is another point: In lots of cases, the database is almost too thorough and the province thing can be really annoying - especially in Africa, you rarely know what the province name is (or what is in teh database is different to reality/local names anyway), which , and many times it is the same a the city name anyway. I've spent a good while trying to guess province names/research them in Africa because auto fill doesn't work

Is there a way that it could be changed so that it 'defaults' to the main/larger/most relevant version of the name, or if the names are the same (eg: Kigali, Kigali) it will automatically pick/change to that if you just type Kigali?
