Geo Location Data Binding

I’d be grateful for some assistance please;

I’m trying to bind dynamic data to a Geo Location point – with a view to seeing realtime tracked information for multiple id’s on a google map (each viewable via custom image markers). I’ve successfully achieved this using static Lat/Long details held in a database, but when I bind this data with Geo Location enabled it fails to show (though does return the correct location).

I currently have these Google Maps settings:

Dynamic Markers; Marker Source = database connection with marker id’s set accordingly
Dynamic Attributes; Lat/Long values linked to Geo Location

Do I need to set a Dynamic Event in Geo Location to enable the outcome I’m seeking?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Dave,
Which version of google maps are you using?
What type of front end tool are you using (HTML5 Data Bindings or App Connect)?
Please provide a link to your page where we can inspect this.

Hi Teodor,

I'm using version 1.0.3 of Google Maps and App Connect.

An example can be viewed here;

Duplicating the geo coords binding values on the dynamic 'marker-latitude' & 'marker-longitude' seems to have done the trick. Though selecting these isn't an option from Dynamic Markers in Google Maps, so it had to be done manually.

Is this how you would have accomplished it?
