Delay mouseover event

I would like to delay this mouseover event so it should only fire if the mouse is hovered over an element for at least 500ms. Is this possible?

	lastMarker = marker;
	google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'mouseover', function() {
	  if (lastInfoWindow) {
			controlToggle("show");
			lastInfoWindow.close();
		}
		controlToggle("hide");
		
		if(typeof infobox_js!="undefined"){
			infowindow.setContent(this.html);
		}
		google.maps.event.addListener(infowindow, 'closeclick', function() {
			controlToggle("show");
		});
		map.panTo(latlng);

Use HoverIntent with jQuery- small bit of code that does what you want.

Thank you, downloaded the Hoverintent script. I see it works this way:
$(element).hoverIntent(whatToDoWhenHover, whatToDoWhenOut);

But I'm completely lost how to put it together with this javascript code?

lastMarker = marker;
	google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'mouseover', function() {
	  if (lastInfoWindow) {
			controlToggle("show");
			lastInfoWindow.close();
		}

Wrap your current hover code in a function e.g.
function maphover(){
       if (lastInfoWindow) {
          // the rest of your hover code.
     }
}

Use this for the hover
$("#map-container-id").hoverIntent({
    over: maphover,
    timeout: 500
})
