There is a mention of "nearby" in trackdetails which should indicate the closest village or town.
That "nearby" is most of the time completely wrong. Sometimes it is a small village 50km away while there are hundreds of larger villages and cities close by, sometimes it is a streetname, etc.
Would it not be better to not mention that "nearby" at all if it can not be corrected by the publisher of the track???

In total agreement with VIM: it would be nice if we could correct a wrong "Nearby..."
I allready got comments from people suggesting to look up their town on a map before publishing a track :(
