Irritating problem with ESRI maps

I have 1 500 points on my map, all in three contries, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. 99% of my locations are plotted on the right place, but there are an irritating few that are not, and I cannot figure out why.

 

On all locations I have used [City, Country] to qualify. Example: Jessheim, Norway

When I type that into Google maps, it will plot the location correctly, but in Power BI with the ESRI maps, it places it in Australia.... The place in Australia is called Norway, so in a way I guess it is right, but I want it also to use the City name Jessheim... So why does it work on 99% of the data, but not for these few...?

 

Any help would be deeply appreciated...

Anyone has any update on this issue?  It shows resolved, but still see this issue.

When I use the PBI native map, it seem to locate all these cities in Denmark correctly. When I switch to use the ESRI map, it incorrectly maps one of the city to United States.2016-12-20_15-37-24.png

I hope the ArcGIS team developing the PBI visualization follows this forum or at least they scan for issues relating to their visual.

Clearly something is wrong here...

EDIT: If you use City only in the Location the ArcGIS visual works fine - but now the PBI maps don't!

Now Berlin, Germany in the PBI Maps shows up in the US but Jessheim, Norway is fine...

@Anonymous As @Sean commented to another post, similar subject.  Something is odd. 

 

Below - I'm spelling out:  "Virginia Beach, Virgina" entirely - State not abbreviated and it lands in Austrialia.

 

This isn't expected from a GIS company like ESRI.  I don't riff on the PowerBI team as they are cranking out great stuff, quickly - but this is a rough release of mapping abilities to say the least.
