After Cie's recommendation I've taken a look at Google Maps to see what it could offer us.
I'm not totally sure of its use to us, so I'm looking for ideas, and suggestions as to how we might use it.

One suggestion is to use it to show any events that we have and where they're taking place?
Perhaps some of the dealers?
Cie also suggested a motorcycle car park database. Which sounds an excellent idea.

The test page:

Like the idea of the dealer locater. Would it be possible to show any ride-out routes recommended by the chaps on here. LB.

Hhhhmmm! Clicking the link opens a new window as you'd expect but then up pops a windows error message - as is usual with window errors it is less than helpful! I am the only one who's tried it?

So you can see the maps and click and select stuff?

Hmm not a lot I can do really as the code should be the same.
Will possibly look tomorrow.

Anyone else getting problems with my test page?

Using Firefox - no prob. I tried the test page and it worked OK. The idea of suggested routes sounds good, maybe a library of good rides??? Ooops that sounds a bit dodgy :lol:

I have a Frappr map going for xrv.org members to post their locations but attaching a Google plug in would be more convenient.

I think my main aim would be to integrate it in to the site.
I'm still not sure of the benefits yet, and what we can use it for, but it's piqued my interest and I'm doing some fiddling to see what I can do.
