Whilst revising the mapping pages, I have made a small change to the maps to improve the legibility.

I have change the map display (as provided by Google Mapping API) to use the "roadmap" style, rather than the "terrain" maps.

However, to ensure that the maps do not clash with the overlays, I have modified them to make them monochrome. They now look like:

It's been a while since I looked in here,and I must say that the maps are greatly improved. I can tell in an instant that my motorhome will have no chance of getting a useful signal (nth of Ware) and can stop fiddling about and get back to facebook :) (51.812011,-0.03)
