Embedded Google Map on iPhone

I've published a web page with an embedded Google Map at www.mauivacationrental.com/location2.htm   It seems to work fine on desktop, laptop and iPad, but I'm not too pleased with performance on iPhone.  There is no zooming, satellite view or other options.  Is there a way to improve iPhone rendering of the map, without expecting visitors to install a special application?  If not, I'll use media query and serve a static map image for iPhone visitors.

The site redirects browsers lte IE8 to another site, so please use IE 9 or later, or a non-IE browser to visit the page.

Thank you.  I installed that application, and the performance is improved.  However, from the point of view of visitors, I have a couple of concerns...

1. I don't know if iPhone users typically install that application;

2. Our location is on an island in the Pacific Ocean.  With a finger swipe, the entire island can be "lost", and it's difficult to find it again without reloading the page.  Is there a way to prevent that behavior?

You can set the Maximum and Minimum zoom
or disable swipe

I'll try disabling swipe.  The other solution is more difficult.  Thanks for your help!
