Calendar location maps integration (e.g. Open Street Maps)
Being able to choose the location field from a map provider, such as OSM, and make the location field link to map provider website / mobile app.
Could we add to this the ability to choose from recently used locations? Many of the locations that people choose for meetings are in places they use frequently. For example, it's tiresome to have to enter my office location (or my kids school location) in the location field every time. This could populate based on the frequency of locations used in past calendar entries.

Connecting with Apple Maps and automatically suggest the location live while typing it in, would be amazing and a must have
I was prepared to make the switch to Proton Calendar but it must have location services. I commonly use the location in my Google calendar to launch Google maps so I can get driving directions.

Connecting with Google Maps is paramount to me, before I can justify making the switch.
I would like the ability to connect with Google Maps too. The benefits of knowing current traffic situation, travel time estimates and connecting to Android Auto/Apple CarPlay for navigation purposes is useful. There should be a way for us to allow location services if we want this functionality or deny it if we want to opt out.

+1 for this, at the very least support for opening the location as a geo query
would be good (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geo_URI_scheme#Unofficial_extensions)
Indeed =) It would be great if the address was a standard link that can be opened by any app, OSM, Mappy, whichever is set as default.

Yes! Great idea, for OSM and other open, croud-sourced geo-location apps like it or based on it.
