It would be great if there was an option to set the default start location (for instance, for someone who almost always starts riding from home, instead of having to type in their home address every time the map could automatically center there on load)
sberlin, you took the words right out of my mouth. i could not agree more!!!
Love the new features!... would also like to see a default starting location option.
There is a workaround for that. Open the map where you want your start point, start recording, place your first point at your home then create a link for that 'route' and bookmark that link as your main gmap ped bookmark. Then every time you open gp your start point will already be there :-)
I too would appreciate this as a feature. Thanks
I would appreciate the feature as well. In fact I hadn't seen this and started a new topic (with another suggestion).
I was also going to request a default location. Love the new features too, thanks so much!
I tried the workaround - created a "route" that is just my starting point and "saved" it, now it is on my saved routes list, how do I bookmark that link to be my main Gmap pedometer bookmark? thanks.
+1 This would be nice.
Agreed. I think about this every time I open Gmaps.
A saved start point would be most helpful.
AND remeber default for radio buttons for units and route type (should/could this not be done with cookies?)
Agree. I asked for this feature under another thread.
Change lagtitude (centerY) and longitude (centerX) to your favorite starting point and adjust zoom level (zl) to desired zoom level, and presto.
You should can bookmark it, but I also always find it in my history as I start typing the URL in Firefox and Chrome so I don't have to use the bookmark.
I am pleased to announce that I just released this, the most asked-for feature since the reboot of the site!
It will take a little while for the change to propagate through the DNS network, so if you don't see it, try again a little later you should get it,
To set your default location, log in and go to the "profile" page. The UI should be pretty self-explanatory. Thereafter you will be defaulted to the location you chose as long as you are logged in to the site.
woo hoo!!! love it.
YAAAAAY!! Thank you for this most-helpful feature! I was going to +1 this...now I don't have to. Kudos!!
This is an excellent feature of this site, I've discovered it just poking around and I found it really helpful. Thanks!
