We have a NEW Google Map!
« on: April 04, 2010, 05:26:48 PM »
13 August 2011:

We had a visit from what really looked like a spammer in this thread, so I am tightening down security.
I have changed the password and deleted the user name from the thread, so potential spammers cannot go in and screw with it.

If you want to be added to the map, just PM me or send me an email and tell me your info and I will add it myself.

I just edited my bookmark.  :-)  Thanks for the access, Rob.  Great idea.  (And I love the password.   ;)  )

I cleaned up poor Darwin's confusion (no worries, mate!), so Darwin, you may want to check it out and make sure I have it the way you want it.
Too bad I can't see your picture through my firewall here at work. :(

Even this old guy was able to add a bookmark on the map.

Thanks Rob.

I can't believe with all our members in England, there is only ONE marker on the island!

I will have to use another pc that I have google earth on, or try to find my old GPS unit to get long/lat data to enter my location onto the map, as the street address info for me isn't correct. >:(

You can pick up and drag the marker to wherever you want it to be.

I hope I managed to add myself to the map without messing it up.
It is not my exact address, I will correct it later.

It looks fine, NorR65!  And welcome to the map!  :)

Moving your pointer is very easy.

My!  You certainly live out amongst the sea, don't you?

Thanks
It is a short drive to the sea, a little longer to the fjords and mountains.
When I can thrust my R65 for longer trips I will get some photographs from my trips. At the moment I use my Yamaha Tenere.
If it is allowed here is a link to tourist information from Bergen/Norway.

I just figured it out and added myself.

Go to the map and sign in with the username and password listed by Rob on the 1st post of this thread.
If you have a Google account, you may need to log out, first. mod.

On the left pane of the screen click edit, create yourself a name and save it

On the map the blue symbol appears at the top, drag this to your location and allocate your name to it.
