Geocomplete widget: ability to edit the address after autocompletion.

    It seems one of the main complications with using the Google Maps API for address autocomplete is the ability to edit the address after autocompletion, including adding an apartment, unit, or suite number either on the same line as the street address or on a second line.

    Here are a few screen captures of how one large insurance company handles at least giving the option to add an apartment number. It wouldn't solve the issue of needed to edit other parts of the address (which is also needed in some cases, especially if autocomplete gets it wrong), but it is interesting.

    Can you share that form you are referring to? I just tried the GeoComplete widget, and it is possible to edit the address after auto autocompletion.
