Incorrect lat & lng

Hey!

I've got this response from a geocoding request:

{"info":{"statuscode":0,"copyright":{"text":"\u00A9 2019 MapQuest, Inc.","imageUrl":"http://api.mqcdn.com/res/mqlogo.gif","imageAltText":"\u00A9 2019 MapQuest, Inc."},"messages":[]},"options":{"maxResults":-1,"thumbMaps":true,"ignoreLatLngInput":false},"results":[{"providedLocation":{"location":"6720 Szeged Tisza Lajos krt 40"},"locations":[{"street":"","adminArea6":"","adminArea6Type":"Neighborhood","adminArea5":"Szeged","adminArea5Type":"City","adminArea4":"Csongr\u00E1d","adminArea4Type":"County","adminArea3":"","adminArea3Type":"State","adminArea1":"HU","adminArea1Type":"Country","postalCode":"","geocodeQualityCode":"A5XAX",
"geocodeQuality":"CITY","dragPoint":false,"sideOfStreet":"N","linkId":"0","unknownInput":"","type":"s","latLng":{"lat":46.254631,"lng":20.148602},"displayLatLng":{"lat":46.254631,"lng":20.148602},"mapUrl":"http://www.mapquestapi.com/staticmap/v5/map?key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&type=map&size=225,160&locations=46.2546312,20.1486016|marker-sm-50318A-1&scalebar=true&zoom=12&rand=-910802785"}]}]}

 

The problem is the results are:

"lat":46.254631,"lng":20.148602

These coordinates are not correct.

 

Te correct one is found in the mapUrl field:

&locations=46.2546312,20.1486016

 

I think the problem is rounding related. Use a 7 digit rounding instead of 6.

 

"lat":46.2546312,"lng":20.1486016

The six decimal place
The six decimal place location is correct and expected. The seven decimal place location is unusual but not unexpected.

Check this:

Check this:

"location":"6720 Szeged Tisza Lajos krt. 40" Result: "lat":46.254631,"lng":20.148602 result in mapURL: locations=46.2546312,20.1486016
"location":"6722 Szeged Boldogasszony sgt. 21" Result: "lat":46.254631,"lng":20.148602 result in mapURL: locations=46.2546312,20.1486016

For some reason they are identical. When I search these adressess on mapquest.com the results are 100% correct. The 2 address are 0.9 miles from each other.
