    This should be very simple yet I can't find a way. So disappointed with Apple.
    Let me repeat. How to add a location to an existing (not new) contact?

    By the way, it used to be there at least in Calendar, but now it's not.

    WTF wrong with Apple!!?? I just discovered that if you Add a Location to Contacts from Maps app, you only added the address, not map URL. WTF??

    It exclude Map URL, which should be the obvious choice if you add a location from Maps app?

    By the way, I found a way to add a location (Map URL) to an existing contact.
    1. Find the location you want.
    2. Click the red pin.
    3. Click the "i" icon
    4. Click the Share Button on the upper right (the one that has arrow)
    5. Send email.
    6. In the draft email window, right-click the card icon.
    7. Selects Open With.. then Contacts.
    8. The Contact app will appear. It will ask you to import 1 card. Click Import.
    9. You got a new contact, now with Map URL.
    10. Select that URL, hit cmd+C to copy.
    11. Go to your desired contact, Click the URL header.
    12. Select "Custom"
    13. Type "Map URL"
    14. Click the URL field, then paste.
    15. Now you add a location to an existing contact.

    Easy!
    Thank you :apple:. You're really Think Different.

    (PS: Don't forget to delete a contact you just imported. Phewww!!!)

    Now instead of being angry at Apple, maybe give them proper feedback, since they won't read every thread here.
    Or do you think, www.apple.com/feedback is for the mob?

    Thank you for your understanding. Yes, I'm very angry at the moment. When it subsides, I'll head to Apple to leave feedback for sure.
