Wishlist: Zoom-Level Option for Google-Maps



There seems no Zoom-Level Option for the Google-Map Feature now. We don't have Buildings in different countries, we have for example, 4 Buildings near 30m distance, so at the moment you can't see where exactly is which Building (with Sensors) in a street. The Google-Map Zoom-Level is to big and can't change.

Google chooses the zoom level automatically, based on the position of the markers on the map. Sorry, but we do not have any influence on that.

Same problem here. Eg PRTG v12 map cloudmade zoom's closer at http://maps.cloudmade.com/ than in PRTG. We also have several buildings at very close proximity at several district's and the PRTG does not zoom enough.

PTRG map's are much better than previous version's, thank you for that.

to set a custom zoom level in the Geo Maps of PRTG please go to <PRTG Install Directory>\website\javascript\customerscripts.js and add the following line:


This will cause the map using maximum zoom.
Best regards
