Hi, another feature request for the cache page itself.  The map that is initially displayed for my cache page shows about a 2000 mile span, from Arizona to Mississippi.  

Two clicks of the 'next' button gives a more useful initial display, showing detail at the city level.

Don't most users come in to the cache page from a search of nearby caches or a zip code search or other known-location based search?  In this case they'd know that they were in the general vicinity of the south central USA, and so placing a map there that's already zoomed out to this whole region isn't as useful or convenient as starting at the city level.

Maybe a minor detail but see what you think.  This is something that is mildly annoying to me when I go to look at a list of nearby caches and every time to see where it is I have to click the next button twice to find out what city it's in and where within the city.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Now I honestly can not remember our original reasoning for the initial view being zoomed 'OUT', but it is certainly something we can revisit. Especially because I find it annoying myself  :grinnin

This has been changed and the default map is now for the 'Local Region' vs the original layout which defaulted to a U.S. Regional map.
