Bencorrbeg --> Binn an Choire Bhig
Context of comment:Should Bencorrbeg mountain not be called by its correct name "Binn an Choire Bhig" as it is in the Gaeltacht. The Irish name means something, the English version does not.
Message:Change Bencorrbeg to Binn an Choire Bhig

Mountains climbed area diagram.
Context of comment:Emerging feature.
Message:There's a new feature to help you locate what you have climbed or not climbed in any area -- a colour topographical map.

Go to My View | Climbed Log

Change "No map" to "Selected Points" and click on "have not climbed"

Click on New List.

A map should appear.

This is working well enough to be useful, however there are some obvious improvements. You are welcome to make suggestions.

GPS corrections.
Context of comment:Note: Mountain Views now accepts GPS readings from users for mountain summits. The purpose of these is to correct the GPS information the site gives out.
If you are using GPS, take a reading for summits that you visit. Go to the page for the mountain and click on "Amend" beside the grid reference to enter your suggested position.
You will be doing your bit for everyone!
