Hi I have developed a site, embedded a google map on the contact page which all works as one would suppose on a computer BUT when I view the site on an iphone and click the contact page, it takes me straight to the google map of the address I have submitted but shows another company who is in the same building, ie same address but who is a sponsored link. When you hit the contact link there is a strange behaviour almost like one page .. most likely the contact page gets shuffled behind and then the map comes up. The only way I can exit from the page is to hit my home button and then the firefox icon which then directs me to a blank contact page. How weird is that? Has anyone else had similar behaviour?

I do not wish to submit name of site as I do not wish it to show up in search results but if anyone can help me I will pm site address. Thanks


Client uses iphone mainly so any help here greatly appreciated.

I do not wish to submit name of site as I do not wish it to show up in search results but if anyone can help me I will pm site address. I can totally understand that. There's times too when I can't or won't give the address.

In these cases short url services work great. https://bitly.com/ for example.

Thanks for your response, I never thought about using bitly! Great solution.
I have done further investigations into this issue and it seems it only happens on my iphone, typical. Time for a trip to the apple shop.

Thanks for the support!

Actually, I am still having problems with the iphone, the header background stops just short of the header image and the home page is worse, though why this would be when the html and the css is the same for every page, I have no idea. Site is http://bit.ly/O21fXj.

Thanks for your time
