I used google maps to get the embed code for a google map which i am displaying on a sit I am building.
the problem is that when you view it embedded on my page, the location on the map is waaaay off to the upper left corner and barely visible in the google maps iframe. how can I get the google map to load centered on the address?
TO see what I mean go to http://www.thetirewarehouseinc.com/beta and click the "show map" button for the Troy Location (the first block on the left) to reveal the map.
any idea how to get the google map to center??

ok well i wound up fixing the issue on the home page by using the google MAPS API instead of the simpler embed code. it was a lot more code but it did the trick.

nobody can help with this? google searches keep mentioning map.checkresize but i don't know what that is.

sorry take a look at this page:
and click the "Map/Directions" link for one of the locations.

ok i see that the map.resize refers to the google maps API. I am not using the API, just the standard embed code.
