Hi Andy;

Had a hunch it might have been IE as the issue so I flipped over to Safari - and the MoonBeam has landed her bubble - with the CP and VI to boot.

This is a great idea and resource.

Wonder in the future when you are playing around with it - sort/show CP's only so you could plan a really cool Courtesy Parking Holiday.

You could then elaborate into model, years etc - but as you know for a cool resource like this everyone has to play the game.

Also in the future will there be addition fields to enter - like WBCCI number actual location (my main road seems to be missing) which indicates the map in the Ontario might be a little outdated. The road has been officially there towards Nephton - for ever.

But I am not complaining - this is cool and the fact that I can tell I am in the South Bay portion of Stoney Lake is good enough for me.

Thanks Andy - and you guys at theVap for bring the idea to this forums attention too.

Great idea. I am looking into a way to have filters so you can see coutesy parking, rallies, inspectors, etc. Also, plans for more info on the hover over are in the works so you can see the members avatar and link to their profile right from the map. Same goes for rallies, so you can see them and link right to the details...

Nice app, Andy! Though it's painfully slow on dial-up, as are all Google Map products.

I think people should think twice about putting their marker right on their street. I'm going to put mine on our town. If you want to find my house, you'll have to work harder (not a lot harder, but you know what I mean).

I'm a little nervous about all the openness on the internet, where we let people know exactly where we live, and when we're taking off for long trips and rallys. I'm sure the odds of anyone harvesting that information for evil purposes is slim, but still, myself, I'd like to use a little discretion.

Very good advice Steph. Ulitmately I would like to drive the map off of zip codes and city/state/country info to make sure no exact location is given. Then in the cities with multiple members, it would show one pin and then list the members from that town/city.

I also forgot to let you know I set the default center point of the map to Jackson Center, OH right where the Airstream Factory is... So if you zoom in from the first view you get it will take you right to the factory (no hi res satelite view available for Jackson Center though).

You have to scroll and find your 'spot'. Then you have to push the 'update your information button' at the bottom of the form on the left.

If that does not work, can you provide as many details of the issues you are having?

It would be very cool if you could add a link from the member profile to that member's map entry.

I know you don't have anything else to work on.

I agree, I have submitted your feedback to the developer.

I also just read about a request to output a Google earth file so that you can fly around the world and see that courtesy parking before you get there!

Ok guys! I have deleted the initial map at Frappr, and have changed my signature link to direct you to our OFFICIAL Map. After everyone knows, I intend to delete the link from my signature. Thank you so much Andy for expediting the production of the internal map.

For some reason, the map won't come up on my PC, but I thing it's because my IC is slow. It works at work. Thanks again!

It won't accept my information. I zoom all the way into my house and enter my Forum name and click on the insert information button, but I get an error message!
