    Thumbs down RBW Map? Issues!

    Why is it that RBW staff chose a map service that seems to name the littlest WADi but fails to name one single city in Israel? What are you saying by this choice? An quick answer is greatly appreciated

    I am not avoiding your question, however, there are are other issues regarding the World Map that needs correction too. RBW is well aware and has it on they to do list.

    Best regards,

    It's obvious to me.

    RBW staff do not recognize Israel.

    For what it's worth, the Google map being used doesn't have a single city listed in North Korea either. Still, there are a few more popular diving spots in Israel than in North Korea.

    The map system was installed by the old owners, I have searched for and have not been able to locate any upgrades for the software. If I could figure out how to remove the whole thing from rbw, I would.

    As for your reference that rbw went completely out of it's way to not name some city someplace in the world, your smoking crack. We all have much more important things in life to complete, like diving.

    Well said.
    Map supplied by Google.
    For free.
    Google hadn't inputted map data for Israel at the time the previous owners imported the map, but it's there on Google now.
    If there's a fault it's with Google. What do you expect for free?
    Israel is 0.1% of global population and 0.01% of global land area, so it was never going to be number 1 priority.
    A number of locations in the US are left off Google Maps because of fears that the very accurate maps could be used by terrorists: my guess is that there were the same concerns about Israel, and that delayed implementation.


    But getting back to diving: it would be nice if the 'rebreather-friendly locations' section were expanded

    Uh....yeah, but I take offense! At something! Anything, actually! The RBW map fails to show the tiny town in County Galway that my great grandfather was born in! This site is anti-Irish! And every time I write something stupid on this site, people make fun of me! This site is anti-stupid! I, four one, am knot going to take this kind of treatment! I want my money back! I demand a full refund! Your anti-stupid Irish/ Pro-CCR diving agenda is becoming increasingly clear, Bowen!
