Progress II

Google Maps are Go! My Munro Map is now fully functional.

Here's the deal - Blue's are climbed, Red are unclimbed. Click on a hill for hill info. Blue hill info also contains a link to the corresponding set of my photos on Flickr. It also contains a link to a Route Report blog post if I've gotten round to writing one yet..

Click on the image above or choose 'The Munros' tab at the top of the blog. Or click here.

Wait, there's more...

There's a full-screen version of the map. It hides here.
There's also a mobile version of the map (and indeed the whole blog) here.

Despite still having problems getting Google Maps to play nice, I've managed to wrangle my Munro checklist from Google Docs and into the blog. It's got its very own page, right here.

Garmin Support

What do you do when your 5 year old Garmin Venture GPS unit which has been going strong even with a smashed screen eventually packs in?

You send it back to Garmin along with £44 for their repair service and they send you a brand new Venture HC unit! Great customer service, and I'll be sticking with them in the future...
