Has anyone had a mysterious snail trail come up on their map. Mine thinks I have been to Melbourne and back via the south west. If I delete the snail trail, does that delete ALL snail trails?

Assume you are talking about the ExplorOz Traveller app? or something else?

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

I just click on the blue dot and it disappears. Nothing else seems to be affected on my iPad.

Cheers

Interesting.

A while ago when around the Pilbara area I had a spurious track that went due west to a point about half way across the Indian Ocean, and another from the same location that went due east across the continent.

At the time I used the on-line points editor to remove them but I have just noticed that since the recent site upgrade the editor is not there.

EDIT: I just re-read your post. It was not the snail trail that I edited, it was a saved track.

ANOTHER EDIT: I had a further look at my saved tracks and found the Edit function. It is a button at the top right of the on-line tracks map window. (IIRC it used to be a button in a dialogue box that popped up when you clicked a track)

OMG Frank, I think you've just found MH-370!

I didn't find it, Mick, but I'm hot on the trail of the aliens that took it :-)
