    Welcome aboard, and thank you for joining!

    Your account is already updated. I just updated your location so that it would resolve properly on the Member Map. (added comma.) It will update after midnight Pacific time tonight.

    Member locations vary for security reasons. You don't want to point to your house if you're not home for a month! :) It is random, and the accuracy can be set in the security settings.

    I have a question can there be a feature added to the map for Trails that are closed or not accessible? Granted I understand this would rely on members uploading these details, but I don't think it would be much of a hassle. I have found in my experience that Google is really bad about showing routes that are not actually accessible due to the roads being either private roads or on private property if you have little to no knowledge of the area or not enough research material is available online or through word of mouth. I think this added feature on the map would help greatly. I cannot tell you the amount of times my family, and I drove to a place only to turn around in disappointment but hey traveling is half the fun of overlanding! @Michael

    Jim, I just checked your account. You did not have the checkbox checked in your preferences to show yourself on the map. I just toggled that on for you. You also had BHC Arizona listed as your location, which them map could not resolve. I changed that to Bullhead City, Arizona. Your pin should show up when the map refreshes at midnight Pacific time tonight.

    I also noted that you do not have your badge number shown in your profile. You might want to add that, as well.

    I hope that helped

    Thanks for this feature. I travel full-time so I'll be updating my location probably close to once every two weeks or so. Is that ok, or is there a limit to how often we can update our location? ~ Eric AKA Jeepsies

    I might be to new but I am looking at the same problem a few have. My number is 14176 and it doesnt give me a map location box to up date. Just my home base location and my website. After that it doesnt give me a location update box. Not sure how all this works yet

    Thank you in advance

    I'm not seeing my dot on the member map. I think I have everything check properly but I may have missed something. Have any suggestions?
