    Is there a way that a physical address - when entered into my form - can be confirmed by google maps? I am a delivery service provider and it would be great to find out the address entered is incorrect before I drive out there

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacing us.

    I don't think that google map has that validation but you can use Address Map Locator widget or the Geo Complete to verify if the address does exist.

    I think the closest functionality would be the Geo Complete. I made a test and works perfect when searching for a physical address.

    Let us know if you have questions or problem with using those widgets.

    Thank you Jedcadorna - Geo Complete is what I am after. however If you type in an incorrect address it still allows for the entry. Is there a way which the entry will not allow further submission unless the address is accurate?

    Such validation is not present in that widget, but if we see an increasing number of people requesting the same, then our developers might consider to implement it in the future
