Dragging Photo/s to Map won't populate location with graphics acceleration is turned on

When dragging a photo/s to the map in Map Module it won't populate its location when graphics acceleration is turned on.

 

If I turn off graphics acceleration it works just fine and location information populates when I drag photos to the map.

 

I am using an M1 mac computer with Lightroom Classic 13.0.1 and MacOS 13.6.1. The issue happened with previous issues of Lightroom Classic as well and sadly v13 didn't fix the issue.

That's very unusual -- the graphics processor is far removed from updating metadata.  A couple of troubleshooting steps that might narrow down the problem and possibly get an actionable bug report filed:

 

1. a. With the GPU enabled, drag a photo to the map.

b. Go to Library.

c. Restart LR.

d. In Library, select that photo look in the Location tagset of the Metadata panel in the right column.  Does it show the GPS coordinates? Does it show City/State/Country?  E.g.

The last couple of major versions of LR have had lots of bugs with caching of metadata, many (most?) of which have been fixed, but perhaps you're tripping over another one.

 

2. Can you make a short screen recording showing the misbehavior and attach it here?  If you make the LR window as small as it can get, and make the recording short, you should be able to attach it directly here.
