#map_canvas{display:table;margin:0 auto;}

to center marker on Map not div…

I don’t know what version of maps you’re using, but does it’s API have anything like this?

var mapOptions = {
		zoom: 2,
		center: new google.maps.LatLng(0, 150.644)
var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map-canvas'), mapOptions);

i do not use code - just iframe with google maps url - review initial post above.

I’ve noticed that if I use the code for google’s iframe - embed it in my website, etc - but then change the width and height of the iframe manually, it un-centers the marker. There may be other ways to fix it, but I’ve always just gone back to the map site and re-created the code from there (with the new width and the height of the iframe that I want.) In the past, that has fixed the problem for me.

You have a lot more options if you draw on the Maps api, and it’s not hard to use. Here’s a demo:

You can also add a pretty image as your marker, rather than the default one, which is a nice additional feature.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">

.map {width: 80%; margin: 0 auto; padding-bottom: 60%; position: relative;}


<div class="map" id="map"></div>

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

	window.onload = function () {

	var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng(40.742244,-73.952784);

	var styles = [
			stylers: [
				{ saturation: -70 }
			featureType: "building",
			elementType: "labels"
			featureType: "poi", //points of interest
			stylers: [
				{ hue: '#0044ff' }

	var myOptions = {
		zoom: 15,
		center: latlng,
		mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP,
		disableDefaultUI: true,
		mapTypeControl: false,
		styles: styles,
		zoomControl: true,
		zoomControlOptions: {
			style: google.maps.ZoomControlStyle.SMALL

	map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'), myOptions);

	// var image = 'enter path to image here';
	var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
		position: latlng,
		map: map,
		title:"My Site",
	// icon: image // enable if using image for marker

	google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, "resize", function() {
    	var center = map.getCenter();
		google.maps.event.trigger(map, "resize");
