Issues using zoom on google maps [May/June 2022]

I must be doing something wrong, I cannot get the zoom to work properly on the maps component.

The default is 0, which displays nearly the entire planet.

Nothing changes until I raise the zoom to 21-25, then it’s zoomed all the way in to the ground.
There’s no in-between for me on this.

I’m sure it’s an easy fix but the documentation says the levels are from -15 to 15 but those don’t change the zoom for me.

Changes to zoom level will not take effect in a map this is not visible. Are you having this situation?

What do you mean when you emphasize not visible?

The map is set to visible if that’s what you’re asking

Yes, I meant to say that the zoom will not take any effect if the map is hidden.

No, it’s set to visible, I can see it on my device and the zoom just shows the whole Earth

The other issue is that the zoom feature requires that the lat/lon are actually valid coordinates.

I just leave it on the default and it’s doing this.

I’ve tried entering my lat/long also and still the same

If I put the zoom to 25 it takes me to my lat long but it’s zoomed in as far as possible. There’s no inbetween no matter my zoom level

Can you provide a minimal project to reproduce this?

I tried using a map and set the coordinates with the Get Current Location block and update the map and set the zoom and I see it working.

I wasn’t going to use the get current location because I didn’t want to go through the process of getting that setup for the App Store, and it’s for a fixed location of a restaurant

Seems it’s also whenever I use the hybrid map, standard works as intended.

Hi @overshield I have reported this as a bug. Here is a workaround for now. Can you try this and let me know?

Circling back here @overshield

Did you have a chance to test the work around that I provided above yet?

No sir sorry I have not.
I was saving the email I got about this to test it out on my project the next chance I got.

I usually spend a lot of time in code but lately I’ve been very busy and haven’t had as much free time.

But I will be checking it out soon.

Thanks again
