I wish I'd realised that before heading off earlier. I mapped the
section of the street where the dot appeared, but checking the
business address when I got back I hadn't mapped far enough down the
street. I still suspect it is someone working from the garage, as I
stopped where the speed limit dropped from 30 to 20 and there were
no signs of any shops. Ah - just seen Richard's email, so suspect
this company may be similar (although it has the address on the
website, invites you to call in, etc. I'll just have to go back and
find out).

I did however tick off the other shop I went to map. So that's one
more done...
