Location tab - adding maps

Tim Doran 1 year ago in BLOX Total CMS 0

I have loved the location tab that allows users to quickly add a locator map to a story by plugging in the latitude and longitude. Until recently the base map was, I believe, Open Street Map, which added a  locator icon to the map that allowed readers to quickly zoom to or see the location generally.

The Google Maps base map does not add a locator icon - unless I am missing a setting or something. I have tried it several times. Is there any plans, or the ability for users, to add  an icon? Providing a map that only shows a general location does not make the map very useful. 

Thank you in advance for the consideration.
