Returning THunter puzzled by TMap

I'm having trouble digging up the Level 2 Tmap to get the last quest item I need in the quest line to fight Ziggy. I'm using UO Cartographer on classic client. I put the Tmap I was given into Davie's Locker to get the co'ords. Then I go dig with a shovel & the map on my GM Carto/LockPick toon but it keeps saying "failed to find the treasure." The co'ords are slightly different from where the pin is shown on the map vs the co'ords from Davie's Locker. I've tried both spots.
Which do I believe-- the co'ords given from Davie's Locker or where the little red pin shows on the Tmap? I tried digging at the co'ords, near the red head part of pin & then the metal part where it shows the pin sticking into the ground. I read in a FAQ that the chest is always a bit to the right of the red pin & that matches up well with the co'ords. What the heck am I doing wrong?

The pin looks to be just about in the roadway so I would try a lot closer to the road. It won't be far to the right and the faq is probably older than the tmap revamp.

Ok, I finally found the chest! A friend gave me the "make a square with bandies" tip. The square is much bigger than I remembered! :)

While I've had the MAP show the pin as much as TWO SCREENS from the actual location (I had some issues even Thursday night with some Stash maps near the Fandancer Dojo - one that was 2 screens from the Dojo to the ESE, showed the pin going through the center of the dojo), the Davies Locker coordinates were accurate (within reason - It gives you a 1x1 degree starting point, and I've had the chest pop 1 step outside the square a few times, but as a result of digging in the square)

Yeah, the map displaying slightly off is a CC thing. It only happens with the occasional map, but it's a pain in the butt when it does.

In the CC, I've had the entire pin be on the opposite side of a river from the actual map location - including one I posted here a few times that was on Valor Island on that tiny peninsula on the SE side, and the pin showing on the other side of the inlet to the west.

i had one showing it was located in the water before and a few in the middle of the mountains with noway of getting to them. Decoding a t-map isnt an exact science and sometimes ur character just likes to troll u and place pins randomly.
