Hello Jim. Over the past 3 days, I have completed 7 total hours of volunteer service. I would appreciate an email with a certificate as soon as you are available! Thank you so much.

Isabel, its honor system. You tell me here in comments how many hours you worked. We trust you. -Jim

Hi, I’ve been working on Google Maps for the volunteer service hours. I was wondering if I should be keeping track of my hours or if it would be done automatically for me. Thank you.

When I go on Google Maps and search for speed limit signs, am I limited to just the USA or can I search in any country?
