Thanks I got it. I figured out it doesn't recognize all zip codes so I tried until one worked.

The only option I have is "Remove" --- so I did --- and now you can try again.  :D

What's with the zip codes.  I tried a few local zip codes, but nothing works.  I guess gmap only has major cities in it's lookup table?  I could enter a Seattle zip code - I only live 100 miles away.  Charlie

Yeah, seems you can't edit, you can just add on. When I went to add on the pic from last night at PT I decided to edit my "Shoutout" message. Ended up with the first two lines from a blues so I had to think quick and add the last verse. 'Course now some wise-ass is gonna say I have to write the guitar part and a few more verses.-G-

So, can you save Port Towensend from being stuck with a broken link, Slack? How 'bout deleting a pin and doing over. Well, nice thought either way, Riv.

Whoop, I see you've already answered that, Slack.

That seems odd that it won't accept some zip codes. Man you can zoom in and read the street names. My pin only missed my house by about 10 blocks. Hey, I tried to enter a few times and then noticed the message that said I must enter a Shoutout message. Maybe thet's your problem?

All for now.

I don;t think it is GMap -- but the fellows that have programmed the app - "risingconcepts" - it is a Beta, so I'm sure they know they need to add all the zip codes annd it is a mystery why they have not (I think I'll shoot them an email) - as the tables are readily available!  Unless they have to assocaite all Zip codes with Longitude and Latitude - then it is a chore and I understad. :)

Why not add yourself as Seattle and we can always refine later, when they get all Zip codes in?

Cheers,

I used a Seattle zip code - it works fine.   I can zoom in and see my house, in particular using the TM satellite imagery, but no zip codes.  Charlie

Got it. Don't zoom in too tight or you'll end up in Puget Sound (edit: no, it's moved inland). My pin ended up behind our local Radio Shack store.

Ah, well then I retract my dissing of risingconcepts.  The satellite imagery is a kick isn't it?

They are making quite a few changes to frappr -- added some photo stuff -- kind of an interesting idea.
