Post Suggestion to make the maps work better on mobile browsers
I have been playing with the Google Maps API over the past few days and after much frustration at trying to get a usable map on a mobile browser, I found this:
[url]https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/basics#Mobile[/url]

If you insert the following tag into the page header it fits the map to the window size and makes scrolling and zooming the map so much easier on mobile browsers!
[code]<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />[/code]

Could this be added to the GCA map pages? As currently the maps a rather hard to use on non-desktop devices...

Side note: Why can the forum render the quote tag correctly but not the code tag?

Out of date forum software.
I'll add this to the developer list so it doesn't get lost.

Hi LL.
The change has been made. I see no adverse impact on the PC. Is it working for you on your device?

Works beautifully on an Android Chrome browser! Much easier to use than it used to be - thanks!
