    If some of you shoot the way you put stick pins in the map feature than the big game population has no fears!:)

    So far there is a push pin in an intersection, one in a field, etc.:D

    Geez guys, I thought this forum was about accuracy!!!

    Nope, yours is covered by trees! I could live with that, maybe there's a house under there, but the one in the intersection...

    Hey, I didn't see the satellite picture version but I was still within 150 yards. It's fixed now.

    There are an AWFUL lot of pins in empty fields, or worse yet, on mountains sides. I can understand that houses MIGHT have been built in those fields, but the pins on 45 degree slopes are ludicrous.

    I understand if you don't want everyone on the web to know where you live, but it just clutters up the map if all you are doing is poking a pin in to poke a pin in!

    OK, OK, I put mine where I'd like to be, not where I live. Do I have to point to my house?

    My pin is exactly where my home is. Well this is my summer/fall home. Sitting way up in a canyon, up on a (some parts nearly 45 degree) hillside near Goebel canyon. The reselution is not clear enough in this rural area to actually see my trailer. I can go weeks without seeing anyone up here!


    Funny, I see that someone lives at an airport! I think that was a movie with Tom Hanks in it....

    If any one has problems placing the pins, this copy of another post might help.

    Dave,
    The first thing you need to do is get the coordinates for you place or something close by; that'd be Latitude and Longitude.
    Second you click on Googlemap ME up on top of page and you'll see this

    Please notice that on top of this poto there is something that looks like this: [Your entry], when you click on that you get this:

    [​IMG]

    We're close! You need to fill in where it says "Maker Title", the "Marker Test" and the yellow test boxes for latitude and longitue. You can fill in for URL of the image for the marker if you want or leave it blank for now.
    At the verry buttom, you need to scroll down, there is a button that says update your information. Click on it.
    Your done and Finished.
    If you nee help to get those coordinates, send an address of your place or any other place close by and I will get those humbers for you.
    Good luck!

    I have no problems with not putting it on your house, I respect peoples right to privacy.

    BUT...if you don't put it on your house, at least put a note saying WHY you put it where you did!!:)
