Myself and others thought it might be cool to setup a Google Map so everyone can see where they are in relation to various members and Vehicross friendly shops/dealerships. (continued from here (http://www.vehicross.info/forums/showthread.php?t=13977))

The idea is that you'll know who the local members are that might be able to help you install that part, and easily determine where a good central location would be for a get-together.

You don't have to put your location EXACTLY if you don't want people knowing exactly where you live, but putting a pin point on the main street in your town or some other central location near where you live but not exactly... would be good enough to do the above.

Here is the Map:
http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=106875359261866866038.00045448bdc888ff9b2d2


adding you location is a breeze...

Click [EDIT] on the left hand side of the page (*see picture below)
Find your location on the map
Click the "Placemark" button at the top of the map window (it looks like an upsidedown tear-drop) and click on your location.
This will open a little window, Add your vehicross.info user Name as the title, if you click "Rich text" you can add a picture of your car by clicking the image icon all the way to the right. Or you can change the location marker by clicking on it in the upper right, or add text or whatever you want
Once you're done Click [Save] and then [Done] on the left hand side of the screen.

Note: You will need a Google account to edit the map, you can either sign up or if you don't want to you can PM me with your address or coordinates and any other details and I will be happy to add you to the map. :)

(^this picture is obviously from another map I made :P )

I've added myself as well as Isuzu's USA headquarters just to get it started, feel free to add yourself as well as any known Isuzu dealerships or good shops, etc. that others might be interested in :cool:

Hopefully we can get a good number of people signed up :D

Let me know if you have any problems...

Yeah, I also don't see the edit button.
I do see where Zues put his house tear drop, so I guess he found it.
Someone help.

O.K. I plced my home on the map. I titled it "Tomdietrying's Home", but it comes up as "Placemark 8". How do you edit that? I went to edit, but I didn't see where to go from there.
Thanks.

Great idea! I had to include St. Charles Isuzu & Espo's after adding our little placemark on the map. Changing JoFotoz icon to a boat HAD to be done! :rotate:

Done and done.

Thatís weird? I found a bug. Some how Jo moved my place mark. I think if you have a place mark highlighted then you kick edit you can change other peoples markers.:confused:

Scott Harness
08/13/2008, 01:56 PM
Yes you can,on the name list it asks you not to edit.

Clear cache and cookies and hit F5 to reload the page. If that doesn't work...

When logged in to Google Maps, under "My Maps", remove the map(s) (could be duplicates) by clicking the [x] to the right of the title. Hit F5 again and then come back and click on this link (http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=106875359261866866038.00045448bdc888ff9b2d2). All should be fine.

What happens is everytime you click the link on the first post (or the one above) while logged into google(gmail,docs,maps,etc.), you duplicate the entries in the "My Maps" section creating some confilicts. If you want to check the map again. GO DIRECTLY TO GOOGLE MAPS and login to view the map. Or... you can just repeat the process's above over and over. :)

You can also find the map here (http://vx.xclusivmedia.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=49&Itemid=80), without the edit functionality from gmaps...

I have had no problems seeing the map at any of the 5+ computers I touched today...

I'm in too. Btw, somebody needs to move "St. Charles Isuzu - Ask for Merlin" from eastern North Carolina to their actual address in Missouri...

If I could make a suggestion... might be nice to have everyone use the colored VX avatar for their placemarker. As a Foxfire owner I know it would be cool to see if there's any Foxfires nearby without having to click each placemark...

nocturnalVX
02/11/2009, 02:14 PM
Someone must have accidentaly moved the St. Charles avatar. I will move it back. Also, people can change thier avatar to whatever color matches thier VX. Having color-coded pins for easy reference is a good idea.

I added myself - odd but most don't show up on the map and I don't show up on the list. I'll refresh.

Wow I even impressed myself. I'm on the map. Most of you will not think much of this, but I used to consider myself computer illiterate, now I consider myself computer "stupid".

My bad, I never even saw this thread. I've added this into the site. You'll find the link under the main menu for easier access. It's titled VX Map (http://www.vehicross.info/modules.php?name=VX_Map)
