CheckerPlus not pulling across complete location address can results in incorrect Google Map lookups

Is there a reason why CheckerPlus is not pulling over into entire event location/address into Google Calendar?

We tend to end up with a clickable link in our Google Calendar, but this does not reflect the exact address and could result in an incorrect Map lookup when the Facebook location is unknown in Google Maps.

Here are a couple of examples, one of an event which retrieves what appears to be the correct address and one which resulted in a miss match. Neither actually pulled the exact address over into Google calendar.

The address is visible in Facebook event above.

now this resulted in the following clickable "Tiger Rag - Fridays" link both in the CheckerPlus popup and Google Calendar:

https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en-GB&q=Tiger Rag - Fridays&source=calendar

The result isa Google Map lookup that can be a bit hit and miss, which we will see in the next example:

Here is a previous test event I used and again the address and location map point to a park in South East London

Somewhere between Bermondsey and Canada Water to be more precise.

This also resulted in another similar clickable Google Map lookup link: 

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=The Great Outdoors&source=calendar

However as you can see from the above result, not only did it not find the Facebook address, it suggested a completely different business located between White City and Acton. This happens to be the completely wrong side of London, in West London as opposed to East London.

If the location address is visible in Facebook why can we not have this pulled into the new Google Calendar entry?

It is quite a big issue in Google Calendar alone, without mentioning embedded/iFrame Calendar solutions or even other website calendar tools that may render the link as plain [string] without any address information at all.
