Yeah this is a GREAT IDEA!

I have a Mac and using Safari, Chrome and Firefox I had to select the the [Untitled Layer] top left corner to display the various location pins if that helps. If the option does not appear initially try a Refresh.

I will need to get an excellent local garage registered on Google, can't seem to add them if they are not.

That looks pretty good.

Unfortunately there's no blobs on Swansea. I desperately need to find someone to put a new engine in my 65 split after blowing up on way to Glastonbury at the weekend. Been talking about getting a bigger engine for a couple of years as with 4 boys, tents, surfboards loaded any hill has been a challenge.

Any assistance or advice greatly appreciated.

Yeah, I tracked it down to someone on the latebay forum, it was hacked 2 days after someone linked to the map on there. I will rebuild the map and lock it for editing this time.

I don't see any garages - just caravan and country parks?

I thought I would start rebuilding the map. Googled a recommended garage to add to the map and bizarrely found the old map. So it is back! If you know of a good garage, please add it to this thread and I will enter the details into the map.

So is there no way people can enter their own details onto the map?

We can start to get places linked up over Europe then too.

Seems to be a lack of places around Manchester. Anyone know of good people around that area?
