I have tried to get my map set up, to no avail. Can you send me instructions-step by step-how to get a map on my profile?

I’ll be closely watching the replies to this query, as I have the same problem.

To add the Dive Map to your provifile, go to Edit Profile > Settings and choose to show the dive map. Then when you click "I’ve Been Here" on a dive site, that location shows up on your Dive Map.

I followed all your instructions. Still no map?

I see the dive map on your profile, so it’s setup correctly in your profile settings...now you just need to add dive sites to the map. The dive sites that you add sometimes take a day to show up in your dive map.

Every time I think I have attached dive sites, they never attach. I have spent much time putting sites in, but they never show up.

Greg, I have finally figured out my problem. I do have my map on my profile page. I thought my home page was the same, and that is the only one I was looking at, and the map isn’t on my home page. Thanks.

From allisonfinch: Every time I think I have attached dive sites, they never attach. I have spent much time putting sites in, but they never show up.



Do the dive sites have geo coordinates added? When you view the dive site, do you see a map of where the dive site is located? If so, it may just take a day for your dive map to reflect the recent dive sites you’ve added.



Thanks,



Greg

BTW, it appears that you once you get to 100 dive sites thats the limit and as you keep adding more the old ones disappear off your map.


Now on "Dive Sites" when I post reviews or add pictures I’ve stopped clicking "I’ve been there" so my map doesn’t change.

How do you put geo coordinates for a whole country? I am way beyond putting individual sites on the map. It is just too much to have to have actual coordinates for entire countries.


One should be able to just click a site and add a name, IMHO. If I need coordinates, I will have to give up on the idea.
