Only problem is, it puts me off the coast of East Africa when I'm actually in SC, USA, slightly an ocean away. Do you test these yourself first?

btw: I have a local G-map locating all the golf courses, schools, police depts, and Starbucks for people new to Greenville, SC. It is linked to from the lower right sidebar on my homepage. Oh yeah, there's an OSS map I've been maintaining for over a year that highlights countries going OSS with relevant links to those stories.

If you want to add them to your list, feel free, they were a good exercise for me, and they work lol.

I reside on the west coast of Canada (Vancouver Island). My country was correctly diagnosed and a fine looking maple leaf flag displayed - but the map puts me off the east coast of Africa (probably right beside Greenville SC). No Latitude or Longitude were displayed.

My IP is correct, my country is displayed correct, but, like Gerry the map put me off the Coast of Africa. No Latitud, no Longitude.

I had the same problem as BillyG.

I'm in Missouri, except on this map, where I'm hanging out off the West coast of Africa.
