Map not displaying correctly

I have been trying to display google maps on my website but cannot seem to get it displayed correctly. Could you review www.wedcars4u.com/draft/
any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

This is because you have the map div inside another div with style="display:none"... The google maps can't position properly with display none... A solution I've found for rendering a map that isn't displayed is to use style="display:block;position:absolute;visibility:hidden" when loading the page and then you can change it back to style="display:none;position:static;visibility:visible" after the map has loaded.

Hi Ray,
Tried that but still doesn't work. The odd thing is that when I go to street view it displays correctly.
Any ideas?

It doesn't look like you have successfully implemented my suggestion.

I still see the map in a layer with class="hidden" which is defined with display:none; in the css. If you add the map to a visible area as the page loads does it work properly? I still think my original suggestion would work if pulled off properly.
