Google Maps API

Hi Experts,

I'm using the attached code to show a google map when the user hovers over an image.  The code works great but the map needs to show hotel locations.  I made a map in google 'my maps' with a few hotel locations.  How can I make this code display a custom map in google 'my maps'?

Thanks,

HNM

You have a "Link" link on the top-right corner of your map. You can copy that html from "Paste HTML to embed in website" and replace the iframe stuff from next page.
You can also customize the dimension of iframe and show or not the link with the large map.

But the map disappear after is loaded and the image appear. Isn't it like that?
The problem is that if the map is hidden at the beginning it is not loaded ok.
