That worked perfectly. I was able to remove the code and now the map responds as expected.
I'd love to see a lot of these options placed into an include file where they can be edited. I've moved about 6 of them into an include file for my maps. Things like resetting map center and zoom level if an address cannot be found, coordinates, mouseover VS click, etc. That would allow changing them in one location rather than the usual 3-4 locations in the code.
