Allow to open Map points in Organic Maps

Organic maps is a nice offline map.
Would be nice to be able to look at points or routes from deltachat in organic maps.

organic maps has an uri scheme based api:

I tried implementing it into iOS for poi messages, it works, but I encountered some bugs in organic maps while doing it.

Bugs I found:

  • When opening 1 point, but then another point it still zooms to the old point. (unless you close the app in-between)
  • the web interface can handle,14.4188871383667, but the iOS organics map app can not.
  • the iOS app can handle,14.4188871383667, but the website can not (it zooms to close to the zero point for some reason).
