I am having a problem with using custom markers appearing way to the bottom right of the actual point, especially at the higher zoom levels (zoomed out).

If I zoom in far enough they eventually tend to align up with the actual point, but this mis-alignment is a problem when the map is not that zoomed in.

If you click on the marker to show the balloon the pointer to it shows the correct spot.. . . Sad

I've tried using the x,y,x,y for the map marker commands, but this doesn't seem to move the icons.

If I use the default (UGLY! google marker Mad ) everythings fine....

Is there any way to adjust the marker placement, or what am I doing wrong with the x,y,x,y commands when adding the markers? ? ?

THANKS!

For those who need to solve this problem as well.

X and Y are the co-ords of the marker you want to use based on the size of your marker...

So in my case the marker is a 32 x 32 PNG

I wanted the marker to appear just above the point, so I set the x,y's to the lower right corner which =

32,32,32,32

SOLVED!

Another marker I use has point to it and thus I wanted that point to be under the marker... this is a 35 x 35 PNG the map pointer is at 18, 34 so I put 18,34,18,34 for my x/y's and now the point appears right over the location...

So for any one else running into this problem there is info you need to resolve it.

Hope it helps others.
