Labels in the Map Border
If you add LIMBs to a Google Map when the user pans the map the marker icon sticks to the edge of the map to act as a visual guide back to the marker's location on the map. Lots of businesses use the Google Maps API to provide a 'How to Find Us' map. With LIMBS added to the map if a user moves the map (e.g. to find the nearest station) a marker will display in the map border to act as a visual guide back to the business.
You can view a demo of LIMBs in action here and the code is available at Sourceforge.
