Adding the new Google Maps to your own website just got easier with the new #GoogleMaps Embed API (http://goo.gl/iKYgJC)!

Trackable markers... Markers that represent a moving object? If so, you can update the position of markers, which will animate their position on the map. Just call setPosition(LatLng) on a marker instance.

Hi everyone. I finally release the plugin "Google Maps Plugin for PhoneGap / Cordova" today! You can control the native Google maps from JavaScript easily. Most features are implemented such as Marker, Polygon, geocoding, even tile overlay and events.

If you are interested in this plugin, check it out!
