I added a few more Sunoco stations and one shell station. Great idea, now if I could add the Navi unit to my golf and somehow download all the info....

Hey Toby,

Are you sure there is no Edit on middle left of your screen? I though that you didn't need to have a Gmail account to edit the map, but come to think of it, you might have to. Anybody know for sure?

Good job everyone, keep 'em coming.

To see the EDIT button you have to be at the very very top of the list of locations on the left -- and if you've clicked on a location on the map then the list has moved there as well.

Just push the navigation slider to the top and the EDIT button is there (though I do have a Google account, too, so I can't confirm you don't need one.)

Neat feature -- good job.

I too did not see a "edit" button until I signed in.

Added a few shell stations

Default You MUST have a Google Acct

I've discovered that you MUST have a Google Acc't for this to work.
In my attempts I've accidentally added two placemarks #55, #56 which I think I've deleted, if not would the originator please delete them for me?

Nonetheless, a GREAT idea... thanks for this

Anyone know if there is a way to organize the content, and change the colours of the markers? Would be nice if there could be one colour for gas stations, one for dealerships, one for shops, one for mechanics, etc.

How come I am not able to click the pins on this map and see the relevant data? I have another shared map which does not have this problem.

That is, if I want to check what is close to myself, it is convenient to go to my area on the map and start clicking pins on the map itself in the local area to see what they are. But when I do that, I get no information on the pin. To get that, you have to click the pins/titles in the frame on the left which still means you don't know what you're gonna get on each click.

I was just wondering if anyone with some experience on these maps knew what was going on. What is different between this one and the other shared map I have been viewing?

EDIT: Seems now it is working for me. Perhaps my browser was just being stupid or something...
