How do I search for say, hotels or dining if I’m planning a trip, e.g. near another address I know? Maps seems to ONLY return searches for where I am currently at.

If I plug in a different city, then search say pizza, it will find the closest pizza place to my CURRENT location. This is not what I want.

If I open Maps and move the display to another city and do a search for "Hotels", it displays hotels in that city. Or if I search "Hotels Seattle", it shows hotels in Seattle. Is that what you're trying to do?

That’s the reason I still use Open Street Maps or Google Maps when Apple Maps have the best satellite maps.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Scroll map somewhere else
2) Type something in search
3) It will search in area next to you
To see it somewhere else had to scroll again somewhere else
