Adding a map is quick and easy. After adding the map element from the “Add” popup, enter the desired address (Street, City and optionally Country) or coordinates (latitude and longitude).

The map element has two modes: basic and advanced. In the basic mode, you get started very quickly, only location, zoom level and roadmap or satellite setting are needed.

With advanced mode you have more customization options, but a Google Maps API Key is needed.

In advanced mode you can add more customization of the map look and behavior.

The built-in Snazzymaps themes offer more than one hundred color combinations that will make your map unique and coherent with your website's look.

On a desktop browser the scroll wheel is often used to scroll a page, and on mobile devices moving the page is done via the touch-swipe gesture. These both affect the map, unless you uncheck the “Scroll wheel/touch to pan” checkbox, so you should uncheck it if for example the map is full width.

Enabling the “Location Marker” will show the exact position with an optional name and description. Enabling “Display label on click”, name and description will be shown only when the marker is clicked by the user.

For the advanced mode customizations Sparkle offers, Google Maps requires an API Key with billing enabled. Here are detailed instructions on how to get an API Key from Google.
