THIS IS SO LEGIT. What about when people sell their cars? Should they take their markers out?

Also, to whoever owns the other Z4MR: ALSO in Sapphire Black in THE SAME SMALL CITY AS ME.

REVEAL YOURSELF!!!

If you add your pin with the exact same city, it doesn't behave well. You sort of have to click through all the pins one at a time. I *think* it's better to add your car by zip code to avoid this issue. Comments?

I tried both city and zip and it kept saying I was in California even though I did not click anywhere near there or type it in.

Use the scroll on the left to zoom in on your area, and the pins won't overlap that way.

Give it a little longer for more people to see and you'll be surprised how many are around you. Someone should share this with one of the other Z4 forums, I bet a lot of the UK guys will pop up then too.

Hmmm, I added my entry with ZIP and my marker ended up in Old Town Alexandria. Nice idea but needs work.

Did you try the lat/long settings? That will nail it down. Google can provide coordinated.

It is general if zip only is used and picks out a less than desirable location using zip alone in some cases. If you don't want to use home address, I suggest picking a local business or something else with a full street address close to home. I got my pin to be close without using my actual address that way. This works well with no lat/long.

Let us know if that doesn't help.

That's what I did. I picked a spot a few miles away.

I saw an Imola roadster today on the town square and now I have a pretty good idea of who it was

Looking at you, chickdr...

There is a way to download all the data as csv and then upload the data to another map. It can be done, but you need admin (map owner) rights.

Zpost's map owner (M3Dragon) is a good friend of mine, so we know the right guy to do things on Zpost's map. Do you know anyone on the UK forum? I (or M3Dragon) would need to connect with them and discuss sharing data, or combining things into a single map. A joint venture if you will.

Try clearing your browser's cache. I had it get "stuck" as well when entering the wife's car after mine. Cache worked. Can't promise but it's worth a try.
