[Fixed] dragging marker is not refreshing place address


I use Angular Maps with Angular 6.

I need to have binding between draggable marker, and google place autocomplete text field

It is almost working, but I have a strange behaviour, when I geocode the place from latlng, I can resolve the place with no problem, but field will not update the new value until I mouseover the marker.

Don’t really know what’s going on here.

Here is my code:

<form #form="ngForm" (ngSubmit)="onSubmit()">
    <agm-map [latitude]="latitude" [longitude]="longitude" [scrollwheel]="false" [zoom]="zoom">
      <agm-marker [latitude]="latitude" [longitude]="longitude"
                  (dragEnd)="markerDragEnd(latitude, longitude, $event)"
    <input id="address" name="address" placeholder="search for location"
             type="text" class="form-control input-lg" #search [(ngModel)]="tournament.venue.address">

and the component:

export class TournamentEditVenueComponent implements OnInit {
  @Input() tournament: Tournament;
  loading = false;
  submitted = false;
  error = '';
  countries = COUNTRIES;
  public latitude: number;
  public longitude: number;
  public zoom: number;

  public searchElementRef: ElementRef;

    private mapsAPILoader: MapsAPILoader,
    private ngZone: NgZone,
  ) {

  markerDragEnd(lat, lng, $event: MouseEvent) {
    this.latitude = $event.coords.lat;
    this.longitude = $event.coords.lng;
    const geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
    const latlng = new google.maps.LatLng(this.latitude, this.longitude);
    const request = {
      latLng: latlng

    geocoder.geocode(request, (results, status) => {
        this.tournament.venue.address = results[0].formatted_address;
        console.log('1:' + this.tournament.venue.address);

  ngOnInit() {
    // set google maps defaults
    this.zoom = 4;
    this.latitude = parseFloat(this.tournament.venue.latitude);
    this.longitude = parseFloat(this.tournament.venue.longitude);
    // create search FormControl
    // set current position


  private setCurrentPosition() {
    // If no registered location, set it to current browser position
    if ('geolocation' in navigator && this.latitude == null && this.longitude == null) {
      navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition((position) => {
        this.latitude = position.coords.latitude;
        this.longitude = position.coords.longitude;
        this.zoom = 12;


What am I missing ?


Update your address inside NgZone so that Angular detects the change:

geocoder.geocode(request, (results, status) => {
  this.ngZone.run(() => {
    this.tournament.venue.address = results[0].formatted_address;

Here is a demo
