Radius Form wrong results with zipcodes
Hi i've been testing the radius search form for a while now and can report the following issues:
- If you only put in a zipcode you'll get a wrong result (In my case Brandenburger Tor)
- Tested with multiple zipcodes like: 80331 Munich, 21039 Hamburg and others
- Looks like that the zip code only works if you put in a zip code and a city
- If you put in street and city you'll get the right result, but street and zipcode will generate a wrong result
Isn't it possible to find the right location just by the zipcode?
Users don't like to fill much fields and many of them will try to only put in a zipcode.

The google geocoder does not recognize that format correctly. I think the radius search needs to be rewritten completely for several reasons. The geolocation for the radius search should support Google places like the directions forms. This would allow the user to enter a ZIP-code only, as Google places would suggest the city with auto-completion. This way we'd get rid of the ugly search form with its 5 address fields, too. The supposed new form would look like this:
Radius: 100 km Adress: _______________________ Submit
