Show the map type control

There are four types of maps available within Google Maps:

  1. Roadmap: displays the default road map view. This is the default map type.
  2. Satellite: displays Google Earth satellite images
  3. Hybrid: displays a mixture of normal and satellite views
  4. Terrain: displays a physical map based on terrain information.

The plugin allows you to add another type of maps which is called “Custom style”. To allow users to switch between the all types, you can add a control called “Map type control” on the map which is a serie of buttons/options that allow users to change the map type/style.

To add the Map type control on the map, do the following:

  1. Edit a map
  2. Open the widget “Progress Map Settings”.
  3. Click on the menu “Map settings”.
  4. Select the option “Yes” in the field “Show map type control”.
