Map not showing correct location via recordset or static postcode

Map not showing correct location via recordset or static postcode

I have an issue whereby my site won't display the correct location on the map if using just a UK postcode via a recordset. As this won't display I have also tried adding the street address as a static entry and also via a recordset - both failed to display correctly.

I have seen similar issues on other threads but no solution has been offered.

Is it the geo-cache causing the problem as it only seems to reference 3 addresses, surely this should contain all addresses?

Any pointer helpful as I have had to pull the plug on the maps for the time being whilst i can get it working.

thanks in advance

The Geocoder used by the maps API can sometimes have problems with UK addresses. In these cases, it is best to use latitude and Longitude coordinates.

One way to find the coordinates is to search for your address at, when you find the address enter the following scriptlet in the address bar:

This show a javascript alert box with the latitude and longitude coordinates to use.

In promaps for google, change the Type attribute from Address to Coordinates to enter the latitude and longitude.
