BlindSquare Question

iOS and iPadOS

I'm intrigued by the feature in BlindSquare that lets you simulate being at a different location, for purposes of planning routes and checking out what's around your destination. Is there any way of doing this with a distant location (i.e., one outside the maximum search radius)? My wife and I are going to be spending a few days in the city for her birthday and I was hoping to plan some surprises for her. I'd like to use BlindSquare to figure out what will be in our vicinity, plan some routes, etc. - but I can't search for our hotel because the app only shows POIs in my search radius. Is there any way to do what I'm trying to do? Any pointers are appreciated!

Okay, I answered my own question. Turns out I just needed to search the address, rather than the name of the hotel. Carry on!

Just like you noticed: Search first with address, then simulate that location. Then search by name: Now BlindSquare makes search on simulated location. You can then simulate place you find and look for transportation, use look around etc.
