When using the Atlas tool, I click on a city, then right click and choose "Open Google Maps". Consistently, the Atlas tool opens Google Maps to a very different location.

In this example, I hovered over Jerusalem and then left clicked to ensure Logos knew exactly where I was looking. I then right clicked and selected "Open Google Maps" and the location was way off. If I select Bing Maps, I get no indicator at all.

Edit: I would like to use this feature when seeing where an ancient city would be located today, but with the inaccurate results, it makes it very difficult to do so.

When you open Google maps, it centers Google maps on the same location that is in the center of the Atlas tool.

Couldn't the API be programmed to center on last clicked location?

I've created a case to consider making this change.
