I have been making a map and have used the embed code to put it in a blog I already have. My questions are
1. How do I get it to start in satellite view by default?
2. How do I set its default placement? I have Africa on both sides rather than centreing it so that it shows a full view of the trip better.
Sorry for the delay answering. Unfortunately neither of these things can be controlled by users at the moment. I do like your idea to have it default to satellite if desired.
There's a bit of a problem with the trips not centering correctly. We've got it listed as a bug to look into and fix. After that it should be centered again rather than drifting off to strange places like it can do now!!
