Ditch - if you go to your Name in the upper right, then to Privacy, and scroll down to Map Settings, you should be able to select and deselect the two settings there, and if you select Point My Location Randomly, choose the radius. One kilometer is the least. Never tried it without Random, but try it, might locate you more to your liking. Most like it a bit random for personal privacy reasons. Sometimes my location on the map moves around my exact location more than I do , which is fine with me.
Might take overnight to reset, though, not sure, as the map settings are updated at midnight for new members being added.
Thank you very much. I am still trying to navigate this site so I may make a few boo-boos. I greatly appreciate the assistance.
I will also give it time to make adjustments.
You're very welcome, @Ditch.Loving the kindness round here.
Everyone is great.
I have no doubt there will be more questions. I'm kind of old school and not on the best of terms with electronics. Ha HaYou're very welcome, @Ditch.
No boo-boos made, just learning what's where. The forums and site can be a bit bewildering and with all the fast growth lately, it's become a bit more confusing at times. The powers that be are working on trying to streamline things a bit and put things in place so it can handle increased traffic and membership more effectively.
Welcome to the Overland Bound forums, by the way! Let us know if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do for you.
HEY!!!!I just found my location pin on the map - it's in the wrong place - 147 miles to the north east of where I'm actually located.
How can I get the location fixed?
My location - Belle Plaine, Kansas, 67013 - is correct and under "Privacy" and "Map" I have checked "Mark my position on map" and selected "1km".
Just became a member and I can't seem to access the full resource map.
I just activated both of your accounts. There was a link in your email to self-activate, or adding yourself to the activation request thread stickied in the new member forum is the other method.I can't seem to the Members Map, Am I missing this option in my membership?
Thank you @Steve ! You're the best!@UTDez23 I am showing you near downtown SLC on the map. Check again by hovering over the pins. You can adjust the accuracy range in your security settings.
@arbezee You had almost everything set correctly, but didn't have it set to show on the map. You should appear after midnight.
