Map with Custom Marker

Post by netdzynr » Mon Dec 17, 2018 11:40 pm

I need to show current position on the map widget using a custom marker -- I want to continuously track the location of a user that is moving, like the arrow displayed when riding in a car. The map widget appears to display in a web view or similar control that prevents overlying an image. How can I accomplish this?

Thanks in advance.

[ Here is a marker solution for the browser widget ... 51886.html ]

AFAIK the map widget uses a native layer.
The only way I can see based on my sparse experiences with the map widget is the following.
You could try to use another native layer, a browser widget, with your custom control, like here:
And then don't move the marker/browser widget, but center the map "under" the custom marker.
shiftLock happens
