Map Block

Map

Version: 5.10

GoogleMap showing Points Of Interest and user's GPS location.

Usage

The system will use either Google or Apple map automatically. The Map block uses a data source to display Point Of Interest (POI). The data source needs to associate longitude and Latitude with each POI to be displayed on the map. You can associate any action to each POI in the Map Block.

Google requires a Google Map API Key to use Google Map.

Version 5.00 Changes [Android] Fixes stability issues and supports for latest maps API. Highly recommended to upgrade, old versions will be phased out soon.

Version 4.60 Changes Added checkbox to HIDE info popups from the screen. (MasterBlock v4.4 & v4.3 removed a similar option that had opt-in logic instead of opt-out)

Version 4.50 Changes Fixes some issues in which the map wouldn't show after the first visit when held within a container.

Version 4.30 Changes Updated so no POIs disappear from the screen when the screen was re-drawn/recentered.

Version 4.20 Changes Updated default behavior on Android when Lat/Lon Center Location is left blank. With 4.20, when Lat/Lon Center Loc is blank, the initial map position will center on the current location
