Great stuff!

Corrections:

North of Stuttgart you have IT - Lecco. That should be in Italy somewhere.

Friedberg is missing, in the same region.

Boppard should be on the banks of the Rhine, but on the map it's way off to the West.

If you give me access I can help you clean it up.

Ciao,
Peter.

It's a great pity that Google don't have a proper road map for Europe. Impossible to locate anything on the satellite map.

Thanks for the help. I made two of the changes but I see Friedburg on my map. Is it in the wrong place?

OOPS: there are FOUR towns called Friedberg in Germany, in 4 different states.

Grant: we need to know which one it is.

Okay, I believe every community is mapped. I have moved the map to its own url and it seems to work. However, I am working off a small screen and need to know if people can see the menu on the left. If not it is below the map. Also, any incorrections, duplicates, etc

I am working on adding other locations of interest- note yellow marker in Alabama, US for BMW dealer.

Check it out!

On my 17" monitor (1024x768 resolution) using Windows XP and the Firefox 1.5 browser the menu is below the map. In Internet Explorer 6.0 it is on the right.
In Linux, also with Firefox, it is also below the map.

Well as it happens, there is only one person in the Friedberg Community - and his mail bounces - so it's all moot - Friedberg is deleted. Note I have learned since then - for the last three years or so I have been checking the location and confirming when a new one is requested.

he learns, slowly, but he does learn...

What a job, well done. Brisbane Queensland Australia is missing, it is just North of Byron Bay. It just goes to show there are touring bikers everywhere.
