Whats the long and lat you are entering. You don't need to give us exact values?

If i put my lat & long in it make me about 18 miles south of my home.
I find it better to point to your location on map and save as home. hope this helps

That should not be case, whats probally happening is that you are not entering the values in decimal format.

Can you please give me a correct format example, for 52 43.2 north & 01 06.7 west and i will see if it works.

See this online convertor:

http://www.fcc.gov/mb/audio/bickel/DDDMMSS-decimal.html

I make your example 52 43.2 north & 01 06.7 west as below:

LAT 52.72
LON -1.111667

Also for wheeler, Using Google Earth I make the airport on Guernsey:

LAT 49.435108
LON -2.601198

Hope this helps

The actual english location mentioned may still think you are in the sea (think it works on the cursor location) but as long it centers your map into guernsey rhen thats the important bit.

Hi your lat and long ok no probs with that,its just that its still centered in the atlantic ocean
maybe we had some more rain and we floated there, or they changed the English Channel to the Atlantic Ocean and never told us about it

I've mentioned the title legend at the top of the map on a number of occasions, as I think the current format is a bit daft.  A more logical solution, should we have to have a title, would be for the Lat/Long co-ordinates for the "Centered" position to be displayed instead, with an on/off toggle for those who are too shy to publish their true location.  Even better, make it editable.
