Have you seen our new Google itinerary window?

On the left hand side of the web page you can now see a new map window. This is a Google map very similar to the one you are used to by clicking on “Where we are” at the top of the page. There are two important differences though. The first one is that the new map can be updated only when we have access to the Internet so it may not necessarily be up-to-date. The “Where we are” map, on the other hand, can be updated through our satellite phone or the HF radio when we don’t have access to Internet hence is always up-to-date. The second difference is that the new Google map has all the previous point while the “Where we are” map has only the points posted in the last three months.
So in summary, for all our past positions use the new Google map but to be sure to see our latest position use the “Where we are” map.
