Google Map will not default to co-ordinates

Google Map will not default to co-ordinates

I have just bought Pro Maps for Google so I can pinpoint the office location for a client. I have tried to put in the exact address but it doesn't default to it. I thought that as I live in Ireland it might not be as accurate as it would in the US.

So I found out the GPS co-ordinates and entered them. It does not make any difference. The default is always the USA. This is useless to me.

I saw that there may be some conflict with Spry items. My page did not have any but it did have a flash menu. So I thought that I would try it with just a blank page. Only the barest of html. I still get the same result.

Could someone please help me here. I don't know what I am doing wrong.

Please post a sample URL, I will look at it and see what the problem is. Use coordinates in your sample.

I have also attached the Webassist extension screen shot which shows the co-ordinates

co-ordinates

Sorry I left out the co-ordinates. I thought the image would show you that I had them set correctly, but it is too small.

Latitude 53°21'59.16"N
Longitude 6°19'9.09"W

co-ordinates worked

Thanks for the adjusted co-ordinates. They seemed to work a treat. The co-ordinates I was using came from google earth. So I presumed that this would be ok for google maps, obviously not.

Can you tell me where you got your co-ordinates from. I will need a different source then google earth now.

To change the bubble details from the co-ordinates to the actual address I had to go to the file wagmp_map_4.js and manually enter the details. Is there any easier way to get the address while using the co-ordinates.

I also selected a push pin as the marker. However nothing shows on the map. You can check the link again and see what I mean.

Thanks

I got the co-ordinates by typing yours into google earth and looking at the results, both are shown in the info window.

The pushpin image seems like it wasn't uploaded to the server. It should be at: pushpin_pacifica.gif

maybe just upload the google_javascript/images folder again to fix it

Blue Back

Thanks for the help. I am now having a problem with the map not loading. All that loads is the blue background. If you look at the following two links you will se the page that I need to use showing with a blue backgroung and not a map. The other link is the map with no other page content.

map.html
map2.html

Any help would be appreciated

Looks like you have a couple of map script files running from different locations causing the issue.

On the bottom of the page I see:

<script type="text/javascript" src="../google_javascript/wagmp_maps.js">/*wagmp*/</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="google_javascript/wagmp_maps.js">/*wagmp*/</script>


Most likely the first one needs to be removed.
