When a Google map is added there are different settings which can be used to change what is visible on the Google map. This gives you the opportunity to adjust it on your own needs, focusing on important locations and a pleasant display. 

By checking or unchecking the setting, the setting is turned on or off.


By adjusting the zoom level, you can show the correct environment. By default the level is set to 13. See below you can see the difference between the zoom levels.
