    The LandyZone international Rescue Map
    200 on map to date

    LZ International Rescue is a goodwill volunteer system-spirit of the forum is free help and parts at cost
    (It should not be seen as a substitute for on road breakdown and recovery cover and is subject to availability)

    [​IMG] Example Google Maps App Android Example

    Click here for map

    Can't see all the details box of member on map - drag the map and not the detail box to get it into view on desktop / laptop.

    Current Map Team
    Trax (placement on map and description)
    The Mad Hat Man and Blue Beasty (Telephone Contacts)
    (telephone contact details which will be kept private and only used when someone is in need of help)

    How To Get Yourself On The Map
    We need:-
    • An approximate location
      So we have you in a rough location eg "Luton" or if an area of a city say "Docklands"
    • Diagnostic kit
      if you have it and models it covers eg. Hawkeye unlocked discovery TD5, Generic code reader.
    • Towing,Recovery,Trailer
      Everything from a tow rope to a full recovery vehicle counts.
    • Tools
      Basic hand tools up to a fully equipped workshop- it all counts.
    • parts availability
      Local knowledge of fair suppliers etc
    • a radius you can help
      (default radius 20 miles)
    • You details
      as above post on this thread
    • PM Mobile number
      to The Mad Hat Man and blue beasty and we will send a test text to make sure it works- please respond.

    Mobile and tablet access to map
    By far the best way is to use google maps application this should be available to apple devices via app and android devices if not already installed via "play Store"

    Android Google Maps Click Here

    On android the map link should open up popup to select google maps, if this does not occur then you will need to have a google account and visit page via browser and add to "my places " it will then appear in map app "my places".

    On the iPad
    you first have to download the Google Earth application, and then you can download the one for Google Maps.

    Google Earth App

    Apple ITunes Google Maps Click Here
    When you zoom in to Google Earth, the locations then appear on some kind of hybrid between Earth and maps.
    Confusing at first, but easy to get used to (kindly figured out and tested by Oldseadog as I do not own an ipad)

    Map Problems / Browser issues
    • No placement markers on map before clicking on a name- try another browser as Opera Browser doesn't like the place marks for some reason.
    • Radius not showing and cross logo-google not rendering radius or browser incompatibility.
    • Ipad/Safari Brower radius issues and it is a known bug, google need to fix or try another browser or preferably Google Maps App.
    • Opera no Radius
    • Firefox if you can't see radius or updated listings-clear "history/cookies " try again
    • We know that tapatalk currently does not work nicely with map
    Failing that add a post on this thread detailing Browser used and Operating System and Issue you have.

    Convert to SatNav
    To create a sat nav file you need to click kml under Map description in left hand column and save,then go to
    POI EDITOR - How To : Convert Google 'My Maps' KML Placemarks


    Details will be added to map and then archived

    Below is a sample of google maps and if you use navigation on google maps app- it will take you to place marker where someone is approximately.

    Dont forget - anyone can help - sometimes, just someone to talk to, someone to bring a mug of coffee (or cake). Stuck on a hillside in pouring rain is no fun....... less so on your own.

    whatever you feel you can offer - its all welcome - even a lift home can be much appreciated.

    Take it from the joke locations some members are reluctant to reveal their actual whereabouts ...say for example Basingstoke? :)

    "Embasinga stocæ" is its correct name. Laziness has abbreviated it to Embasinga stoke

    Can you check that I'm on there too? I sent details originally and I show up on the map I think but I'm sure MHM couldn't find me before.

    Hi guys. Looking at getting on the map. I'm in Middlesbrough and have Defender TD5 and Range rover P38 software inc Synmate. Also if needed a Brian James trailer I can help out with. I'm not a garage, just somebody who now has a bit of equipment after having to fix my own vehicles.
