New Look for Google Maps API

The new design of map controls that was introduced in Google Maps last month is now available to map developers.



To add the new design to a map, developers just need to add one line of code:

// Create a map.
var map = new GMap2(myMapDiv);
// Give it the maps.google.com experience.
map.setUIToDefault();


Maps that contain this line of code will also be automatically updated if the UI of Google Maps is updated.

Here is an example of a map built using the Google Maps API with the new design of map controls - The Knossos Palace

A full reference of the functions, the GMapUIOptions class and all the defaults are available on the Google Maps API Reference.
