I have a couple of suggestions:

1. Remember the last location when displaying the map. Currently, the site always starts on England, which forces user living elsewhere to move + zoom the map each time. This could be done either through a cookie or settings in the URL.

2. Like Google Maps Directions, make it possible to create shortcuts ("Home", "Work", etc.) to easily fill the From/To fields.

I've just added a feature where you can set your home location from your user profile page, so the map will always start there. (It’ll also now try and show a map of your country, rather than just southern England, if you haven’t set a location.) From/To shortcuts are a good idea – will add them to the list for later.

Great ! :-) I set the "Home location" setting, and it works as expected.
