Default Google Map Showing All TDI Relevant Locations in Ontario

Hello All,

I thought it might be good to create a SHARED Google map and populate it with relevant TDI locations around GTA and rest of Ontario.

Here are some ideas what you can put into the map:

* TDI mechanics
* parts stores
* diesel gas stations
* dealerships
* proffesional cleaning shops
* etc...

I'm sure you can figure out other cool stuff to put into this map. I've just adde a single entry to the map, a Shell station selling diesel near my hosue. But, i've only had my TDI for 3 days so I expect you guys to add a LOT more stuff.

Below is the link to the map, and dont' be intimidated; its very easy to view and edit the map.

If YOU would like to edit the map, PM me and I will add you to the collaborators list. its that easy!

Instructions on how to use the map:

1. Follow the above link

2. Once you can see the map, click on EDIT button located on middle-left on your screen (to the right of "collaborate" text)

3. After clicking EDIT, you shouls see 4 icons appar on TOP-LEFT corner of the MAP, not your browser sceen.
- use your mouse wheel to zoom in and out of the map. You can also click and drag the map with your mouse.
- you can either look at the blue placemarks people have already posted, or you can add your own placemark by selecting the PLACEMARK icon with your mouse.
- once you add a placemark, you can click on it to give it a title and description

Its very easy, though It can be a bit confuing if you've neve used Google Maps.

Redlinedave: hope that helps

Silver02TDI: great, thanks for getting the ball rolling

Pretty klunky interface... perhaps on account of my using an ancient computer...

Since I was looking at Owasco (in anticipation of tomorrow's open house), I added the Princess Auto location nearby...

(also added Variety Tools on Jane Street...)

Yuri.

That's cool, but I have no "edit" feature thaat I can see. Do you need a gmail account to edit the map?
