I saw something like that too, maybe you have to enter in a code that google maps recognizes, how you figure that out, I have no idea, but it did sound like if google maps doesn't recognize your country code, you end up in the ocean.

I read in another forum some folks have figured out a way to get the maps to work right for overseas locations...not sure where I read it though...in the help forum ...but maybe search for the help topics related to the map when you have a minute and see if it makes sense? Something about the way Google recognizes country codes and overseas zips?

Hey Raven, it looks like you are on the equator too, must be nice and sunny there.

I think they got me in the right spot, but I'm guessing a lot of members haven't checked that box yet.

hmmm..they did mention this new feature is in test mode so I guess you should let the Support Team know the details and maybe they can figure it out...

hmmm...at first mine showed me still in Virginia, so I had to find how to change it. I had no idea where the location came from but found something when I checked Edit Sparkpage that allowed me to update my Zip Code and that somehow moved me to Florida. Not sure if this might help you get to dry land?

I have done so, but they show me in the middle of the ocean. I am trying to find out how to correct it. emoticon

If you haven't already done so, check out the new Team Map feature on our Team Page. You can check the Preference box to show your own marker and see then click on the button to display the map and Voila! we can be reminded of how diverse the group is!
