Parsing city names in SARTopo Offline

While most everything else seems to work fine, when trying to search for a city or place, I get a parsing error. If I put in coordinates, it seems to have no issues, it is just named places. Am I missing something to have these places properly identified? For example, if I search for "Roseville, CA", I get a parsing error.

    Does an error box pop up, or does is it just unable to find the city?

    The search box in the offline version cannot do location lookups due to the fact that those rely on google maps.

    I have encountered the same "unable to parse" message on most recent installation of SARTopo Offline. I have over 950GBs of tiles downloaded so it is not an issue of not having the map needed. I saw that it has to use Google Maps to find an exact location but this defeats the purpose of being able to run offline. I would not be running offline if I had an internet connection ! I need the offline ability where I do not have an internet connection. No internet means Google Maps is unavailable.
    Does anyone have a suggestion " The Offline is synced properly to SARTopo.

    Text based location searching is not available without an internet connection. You can search by coordinates in offline mode.

    Thank you for using SARTopo,
