Can I get Geo Maps larger than 640x640? Can I have mouse hover functions?



Is there a way to make the Geo Map that shows the devices larger? Also, rather than listing the devices, would it be possible to have it display the device name when you put your mouse over the map location?

The Geo Map feature of PRTG 8 relies on the "Google Static Maps API" which has some limitations. For this reason we can not add your suggested features currently.

Now that PRTG 14.4.x (and higher) can use MapQuest (which we are using and works very well!) is there a way to scale my default Geo Map to larger than 640x640? I have many clients who wish to use the geo map feature as their "dashboard" for multi-site monitoring in a NOC environment. (The roll-up status works very well and clients love it, it just doesn;t look so great on a 16:9 or 16:10 monitor that is 50" or bigger.

Thanks, Todd

You can put a Geo Map on a Map an scale it to any size you want. BTW a Map is much more suitable as a NOC monitor display because you can arrange a multitude of PRTG Map Objects to suit the needs of your customers.
