Hello all,

Due unlimited usage with no charges, I'm using Googles, Embed Google Maps API. For the precise location I'm after, Im using Latitude and Longitude search - which works fine, with the top left info box displaying 51°30'26.5"N 0°07'39.9"W - is there any way I can replace this with my own text?

<iframe
  width="450"
  height="250"
  frameborder="0" style="border:0"
  src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed/v1/search?key=???????&q=51.5073509,-0.1277583" allowfullscreen>
</iframe>

Open in new window


Many thanks

Regards

Jamie

This is not possible with the embedded map.  See here for a list of options available with the embedded map.

You have more control over adding text to markers, etc using the Google Maps JavaScript API.

Hello zephyr_hex,

Many thanks for your reply, this confirms my understanding. As you suggest, I'll give  Google Maps javascript API a try
