It seems that Platial.com, the host for the map, has gone tits-up. And along with them, our map. I'm looking into alternatives and a way to host a map on the forum so that it won't go away unexpectedly...

At any rate, if the map comes back, everyone will have to put themselves back on as the data for the old map is lost.

Pete: hope you can find another map for the forum - it was fun to use! Does Goggle map offer a similar style site that could be used or does Goggle allow too much detail about the exact location of the vehicle?

I'm looking at the google map setup, but it looks like I would either have to add members myself or allow anyone accessto edit any of the map info. What was good about the platial map was that individuals could only edit thier own info.

Other than these issues, the google map looks pretty much the same, and allows other stuff tone put on the map too. You can put your pin on the map where ever you want in terms of accuracy. Center of the zip code is close enough for me...
