ok, I got my map showing but it won't focus on the marker. I have to scroll the map a little upwards.

Here is the iframe I am sending:

<iframe width="700" height="550" id="location84" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" 
			src="https://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.7782525,+-81.929402&hl=en&ie=UTF8&t=m&z=18&iwloc=A&ll=33.7782525,-81.929402&output=embed">
			</iframe>

Open in new window

one thing I noticed the map is displayed in a TR style=display:none. When I expand it using an onclick for the table-row I have to scroll up. But if I don't hide the TR at page load the map loads correctly.

I will have to post part of the code. It's part of a 2 year project I have been working on.

I think it's an issue with the style.display = none because when I do not use that call it loads fine. The map is ok the user just has to scroll a little but it's very odd. I gave my client a work around by placing a link to the map that opens in a popup window. Other then that if I did not hide the map initially it loads perfect. The client is ok with that so I will close this request.

Further map calls I will most likely use there API instead of an embedded tag.
