Hi there

We have recently launched a website that works in conjunction with Google Maps.

It's essentially a tool that helps webmasters add free, custom Google Maps to their websites, without the need for technical knowledge. I would be grateful if you could check it out and let me know what you think (the address is http://www.aardvarkmap.net )

Thanks

Aaron

Hey, it's free! Here's where I live, 400 yards from the forest ;)

Click for Aardvark Map (http://www.aardvarkmap.net/mapbb/L53SDSUR)

I like it, it's easy to use and since it's free and powered by the mighty Google I'm sure I'll find a use for it ;)

The only problem I can see is that it doesn't appear to support non-latin characters so the Ł in Popiełuszki doesn't show up properly in the marker.

Thanks, Geoff... glad you like it.

I don't know if the non-Latin characters is something we can control, or if it's in the hands of Google... let me go and find out for you... :)

Not bad we might actually use something like this on the site :)

Thanks... :)

I'm a Messenger man usually (I know, it's just that's what most others seem to use :oops: )... will see if I can get you on that.

Hi AaronD... I'm not a true Aaron like you... I'm Aaron the Aardvark (to keep withe brand) :oops: :lol:

disciple... don't look like the board supports HTML... when you create a map, you want to select the BBCode option in order to post here.

Thanks for that; it said it was so easy that any idiot could create a personal map, however, they didn't claim that any idiot could post a link to that map!???? This idiot will have to learn to read instructions more closely in the future (and will get around to fixing that F up in a couple of days).
