Default C5 Owners Location Map Available

Change activity:

03/13/15: Updated map link for the changed URL - Thanks for the heads up raff!

Beginning 06/24/14 any map marker that does *not* contain a C5 forum member id will be deleted. The purpose of the map is to show the general location of members or vendors. For example, a marker labeled: calvins - resident PITA would be acceptable however resident PITA would be deleted.

06/12/13: Before we get to the map, I urge all new, and old for that matter, folks to *please* fill in your profile. General location (City, St), year and kind of car/cars, mods, etc. That information isn't to be nosy, but help upfront when you ask question about the car, where may be a good place to have xyz service done, possible mods, etc.

: A software change has made it not possible for a member to change or delete their marker without also having the capability to change anyone elses markers. That could get messy so if you want changes made you can let me know what the current marker name is and what the changes are and I can make them. Or you can simply ask me to remove the marker and you can re-enter it. You can PM me or email me at [email protected] Remember - all markers MUST have your forum id clearly in the marker name or they'll be nuked.

If used as intended, this could become a useful tool for folks who are going to be traveling. It would allow people to see who lives along their route that they may like to visit, aid in get-togethers, etc.

To add a marker - go to the Additions tab and there are two marker options, Simple and Detailed. Which one is used doesn't really matter, it's just how much info you want to share. If you screw something up and put it in the wrong place, you can delete it by hovering over the marker and selecting the red x on the lower right of the popup window. If you want to change any of your info after the marker is there you can simply by clicking on your id in the marker popup. If you hover over the blue marker in NY, you'll see my ugly puss there. So you can do images but they aren't required. You can change your own marker, delete it, whatever/whenever you want to. When placing markers, you can specify a Town/City level but if multiple people are in the same city, I'm not sure how the site would handle that. You can use the mouse pointer to select a location too so getting to your general area, but not too specific, may be a good idea. Your call. You can place markers at the house level if you're nuts enough to do that. Once you place your marker, you can drag/drop it if you don't like the position. If you look at my marker (in NYS), it's in the area that I live but you won't find my house from it. If you wanted to you could go right to your address level, but I personally wouldn't recommend that.


Please include your forum handle and/or email so that if there are issues I can get ahold of you by pm or email. Otherwise, there's not much choice other than deleting the marker.

You can select a marker and use the get directions function. It invokes Google maps and lays out a potential route.

I left it pretty much open as the site isn't published anywhere other than here so we shouldn't get bothered and as long as "strange things" don't start happening I'll leave it open. If strange markers start showing, peoples markers start getting changed or something like that then I'll have to lock it down and require admin moderation which would be a big PITA so please, don't screw around with it, just use it as intended.

I didn't program it so don't shoot the messenger. There may be a few bumps in the road but hopefully it will become useful over time.

OH, and there is a list function under "View->Show List" where you can see who's posted a marker. If you select their name/handle in the list their marker will be highlighted and you can see where they are on the map.
