While nowhere near as fancy, nor as useful, remember you can put yourself on the BigMonkMap on the stats pages. There are 535 people on there last time I checked.
And using this page, you can tell how far you are from other monks with distance and bearing (instructions for programming cruise missiles not included).
I've been told that the MapQuest instructions for finding your latitiude and longitude no longer work. Apparently MapQuest decided that figuring out latitude and longitude would only be useful to terrorists. I'll try and revise the instructions shortly.
