Different results compared to OSM Nominatim


On Open Street Map I can search for Degreminutes as well: https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/?q=53°03'04.1"N 8°37'55.4"E

This gives a complete fine result.

When I try the same for mapquest nominatim it gives empty result:
http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/search.php?key=KEY&format=json&...°03'04.1"N 8°37'55.4"E

(also with urlencoded search query: http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/search.php?key=KEY&format=json&... )

Doing a search for cities like "Hamburg" order "Berlin" are working fine.

What can I do to get a result when searching for `53°03'04.1"N 8°37'55.4"E`. I could try to divide the strings and recalculate the LatLng to use reverse search, but since the inputs are varying this wouldn't be a solution in my case.



The MapQuest version of
The MapQuest version of nominatim has not been updated recently and will return different results than the base OSM version. This is not unexpected.
