Use container size, if we have one, instead of screen size.

jQuery responsive google maps

What's it all about?

Well, when scrolling a website on your mobile device you can get trapped in a google map due to the Maps scrollbar of death™. This plugin gives you a native google maps on your website and a safe fallback to the static image API of google maps for smaller devices.

How to use?

Download the jquery.mobilegmap.js. Removing comments and minifying it will get you bonus points!

To use it:


  // your google map container


You can optionally change these default parameters:


  // your google map container
    deviceWidth: 480 // The select will be added for screensizes smaller than this


If you want to pass the address, zoom level and the maptype you can use HTML5 data-attributes

  <div class="gmap" id="map" data-center="Brugse Heirweg 37 Aartrijke Belgium" data-zoom="15">
      <strong>builtbyrobot</strong><br />
      Brugse Heirweg 37<br />
      8211 Aartrijke

And that's it that's all.


There are still some things that need to be taken care of:

  • make it optional to show / hide the address marker
  • add multiple markers with balloons containing more info / fallback with numbers or letters for the mobile version
