location map of detailers/retailers/members

Could a map be made where companies could show their location. Possibly with different colour pins for say detailers and retailers etc. Even a drop down selector to show only one trade at a time. This could even be used for member locations...

Then someone could use the map to see what services are near to them. google maps isn't great for this and going through each of the companies one by one looking for one local is a bit ....boooring


what do you think?

You mean like the supporter one in mig sig? had it a while buddy.

I suppose it would be possible to add the retailers/traders to this but the reality is that its hard enougj to keep it all upto date as is without adding masses of more names to it.

And with nearly 50000 members even if only 10% of those put their location up, i wouldnt like to keep on top of it

You can create custom maps in google maps buddy, so we did that a few months back so it was easy to see where your nearest supporter is, that map is our current upto date version

It can also be found in all our "need a detailer" sections
