Hi guys,

i´m trying to update my travel map to show the journey so far but its not appearing the way i want, for example i flew from el calafate (argentina) to bariloche, from there by bus to san martin de los andes, but the map shows me going back to buenos aires, i know i´m probably doing something really silly but i´m stuck............. please help....

Thanks
Nikki

When entering the location name, be sure to click on the suggested name as it appears (should be in a dropdown list that narrows down as you type). Otherwise, the map won't be able to place the location. Alternatively, you can zoom in on the map and actually choose the places you visited by clicking on them.

I'm pretty sure this is the issue and it is defaulting to the centre of Argentina because it doesn't know the exact location (which seems to be roughly near BA). You're not the first to encounter this problem, so it's clearly an area that we can make some improvements on.

Let me know if that helps or if that just made no sense at all :)

Thank you !!!! that was exactly it........some of the places had to be manually linked with the map.....
