Sorry but I'm not quite clear about what do you really want to do.
Map Plus is a totally different app from Google plus, although they both has a "plus" in name, the "plus" here indicates it could do much more than the iOS's native Map app. For example, importing, viewing, editing, styling, exporting custom data, add custom online maps such as Google or Bing, supporting professional GIS formats such as SHP, DWG, GeoJSON, Tracking recording, and many enhancement for making it convenient for users such as "Web Browser Access", "Guide Mark", "Arrival Notification"...

It provide a place searching tool for finding a place with a giving address or name, but there is no support for searching from other services such as Google plus or the Internet.

The questions about Google "Plus Codes." A somewhat confusingly named (no surprise here) Google method of locating a spot on earth with no relation to "Google Plus." The "plus" has to do with the addition of a plus symbol in the third to last character to make the code visually distinct. If you type the code into Google maps, the app will go to the location referenced by the plus code. It is useful for locations with no address or when navigating with offline maps where there is no cell service.

The inclusion in Map Plus could be helpful. I use the often when hiking to precisely locate trailheads on the Google Maps app.

Thanks a lot for your explanation, we'll try to include it in the current Search Place function, that enable users to input such code and get the place.

Anyway, currently, you can directly input a coordinate in "latitude, longitude", separated by comma, in the Search Place's input field, so that to get a accurate place at that position as the first searching result.
