Same problem since today May 25th
Also cannot update exiftool - says to check internet connection, which is perfectly sound.

I just noticed I got a message from "smartscreen" (microsoft check on installation) that it cannot be reached.
Maybe there is a connection?

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I fear it has to do with a maximum number of calls to as that seems to be the website used to find locations.

same here: just intalled (and actullay worked like a charm for 2 hours) then, all of a sudden it just started to stop finding any location

as far as I know Friedemann has ristricted the ammount of search queries. Google charges money for these searches. To limit Google's bills, Friedemann has limited the number of searches in GeoSetter.

Thank you and kind regards

Hi guys, I have been having this issue for several months -- is a shame, as otherwise I really love the app!
Is there any ETA of when this might be fixed?

Diagnostic info:
- Ran app as Administrator -- ? no effect
- changed map file <--> -- ? no effect
- Added app to firewall allowed list -- ? no effect
- Registered for own Geonames login (so queries now pass through own account) -- ? no effect
- Changed internet settings IE proxy OFF <--> ON -- ? no effect

@martinzima: these are not GeoNames queries, these are Google queries and Google charges money for these serches.

Hmm... several new issues... hardly any fix or improvements in the past some years... no new versions...
Sounds GS is a fading project?
Shame, because it is simply THE BEST tool in it's category: simply NO comparable tool (to my knowledge).
But these issues are eroding it's usability...
Resisting, but until when?

I have many photos I scanned in that I wanted to geotag before uploading to google photos
I just keep GoogleMaps open in another tab - get the location on maps and then paste it into Geosetter which then finds the location OK
I then save them and upload them and google photos which recognises the data from the Exif GPS Lat and Long and shows the correct location. In fact, Google Maps trusts this data so much that it won't let you change it > "Can't edit locations added by your camera" :)
