FWIW, I’ve never had OsmAnd on Android properly handle a US style street address in a geo intent. The only geo intent I’ve gotten to work was a lat/lon pair. This makes it unusable when selecting an address in the contact app and trying to display its location or compute a route.

It will, however, do an address lookup within the app properly with OSM state, city, street and house number data. At least for whole numbers on house numbers. And you can route to the address that you’ve looked up this way, etc.
