Yet, before it would return to the US centered view where I left it.
It this under some kind of "cookie" control where it can return to the last location?
Is it possible to use a location feature from the ISP to center the map? It seems that a lot of web sites "know" where you are based on this.
I have a link to it under my web site, and I am concerned about US viewers deciding that this is for Europe only and not attempting to drag the map over to the US.

On the first visit, the map is adjusted to position of the visitor, which is provided by a standard GeoIP database on the server. After dragging, zooming, switching stations/sound etc. a user cookie is updated. On the next call, this is used for restoring the previous map settings.

We didn't see a problem here, while testing that with different browsers. Can you test it again? FYI: You can force the GeoIP location when using private surfing in the browser or disable cookies.
Stations: 538, 672, 1534, 1555, 1696, 1712, 2034, 2219
