Thats probabbly a good idea with the unconfirmed stations - alot of them whilst they are valid stations aren't in the right place. New interface looks interesting idea whilst your doing that sort of stuff would it be possible to have station details appear in either a popup window or some other way without needing to reload the map?

Also it appears the price info is not loading on the original format - all stations when clicked on the map show p/l and the date updated without any price given.

Looking better now though some of the new style flags get a bit lost on the map. I'm guessing its not easy to get an outline round the boxes as the coloured pins seemed to stand out more on the map than the text?

Also when you have chance it might be an idea to update the mobile section of the site to make it clearer that the app is there as it refers to the plans being distant at the minute.

Borders now implemented. :)

Modified the mobile page too.

Looks better now thanks. The only other couple of things i've noticed is if you click stations in the list the map loads but isn't selected to the station (which i think it used to do?). If you decide to stay with the new map icons then the legend on the bottom of the map needs updating as well.

It might also be worthwhile to give an option of hiding the account only stations from the map as well (the reason I suggest this is if you look at Witney countrywide and total are literally next door to each other and hence tend to hide each others icons until you zoom right the way in).

I've added the station focusing back in so it will go back to the station after updating the price etc.

Have done now. Better than just the simple map. Thanks again.

Ps. Is there a way of tying it into the GPS so that it starts up showing the 'local' stations? Also it won't let me edit the prices where I know them to be way out of date.

Does it not do this when you get a GPS lock?

i can see all local stations and edit prices, are you sure the data is switched on on your phone?

I can see the local map if I select it in advance, but it doesn't update location when I move away from 'here' even though the GPS does. It automatically updates all the station and prices as they are entered - presumably on the main site accessed by computer - which is what I did in the end for all the nearby stations which were out of date.

The main problem is that the GPS position shown on my new Android phone isn't nearly as accurate as the one on my old Windows 6.5 Mobile. I'm lucky if it's within a half mile when the old phone could pinpoint me down to under 5 metres! Fortunately I usually use my SatNav when I'm significantly out of my comfort zone.

Just to say thanks to Richard for his app and site http://www.filllpg.co.uk Image

Quite a few of us on the VW T25 (aka "wedge") Camper forum have registered, downloaded the "app" and are adding stations and prices :)

Keep up the good work Image

Guys

Pavel has just developed a Windows Mobile app for those of you (unfortunate enough) to own a Windows Mobile App :P (I'm an Android user, sorry)

http://www.windowsphone.com/en-gb/store ... a80988727d

Thank you to Pavel for the effort and time he has put in to this.

Another thanks to Dave for his continued efforts with the Android app.
