Therefore, you can show/hide the zoom button, search box, map type option, and street view control from here. Moreover, there are also map zoom, map height, and search box spacing options here. Furthermore, you can view the map in Satellite mode or Street mode.
The next section is Marker. By all means, you can place an infinite number of markers using the Advanced Google Map widget. Each marker has fields like Latitude, Longitude, Title, and Content. However, using the first two, you need to specify the position of the marker.
Another key point is, you can add custom icons as markers. However, you can not find this feature with any other mapping widgets. This function is exclusive to Element Pack users.
