Hi Albert,

Center your location function is fine, the app shows my location on the center of the map. The problem is that when I zoom out and move map to somewhere else, Google Map keeps moving the map back to my current location after 2 second or so. I do not want that. I want to center my location only in the start of the application, then I would like to be able to move map to somewhere else. How can I do that?

Best Regards,

Hi there,

Yes you are totally right – the current component does keep reseting the map to the initial center and zoom level settings. Definitely something we need to change – will keep you posted when we have that functionality added in the component.

Thanks for the feedback!

Firebase bug fixed?
