This widget adds a mobile-optimised Google Static Map Image with a colored pin centered on a destination of your choosing.
You can stop looking, there is none. You can adjust all the necessary settings in the widget itself.
A few settings are done by default: the scale of the image is set to 2, to optimise it for mobile resolutions and the link opens in a new tab; if I get complaints about the latter I will make it optional.
Please note that the zoom, width and height parameters take a numerical value only.
Since 2013.12.25 I have added some default values to the widget. As I have been living in Beijing, China for the past 16 years and I love hiking the wild Great Wall, I thought it most appropriate to add one of my favourite spots as a default setting. Just replace the default setting with the address (or the coordinates) of the location you wish to add. The same goes for the other default values of the widget.
The Google Static Maps API-key is mandatory, read the Google documentation for more details including information on how to get they API-key.
This only happens if you have not yet added the Google Static Maps API Key. You will need to generate a new API key and add it to the widget settings. Once you have, the widget will automatically auto-refresh (WP 4.5 and above) and you will now see a map instead.
