I'm trying to add entries for some relatively obscure places in Namibia. When I type in the place name (e.g. Sesriem) it is not recognised so I get the option to place my own map pin. However, wherever I click on the map it seems to place a pin a very long way from where I clicked. This is very frustrating - has anyone got any suggestions please!

Hi there!

I just tried it out and i managed to pin Sesriem using the autocomplete on the city field.

Go back to your entry and try slowly typing "sesriem" into the City field.

If you're patient (the internet is probably a little slow in Nambia hug.gif ) it you will see it appear in the options below the field. After you select it, the map pin will be set correctly automatically!

Let us know if you get it to work!

Happy travels.
