 I suggest an option to add to Google Map settings: prevent the map from sliding (on / off). It would be easier to drag the iframe up and down.
Best Regards

Hi Jean,
thank you for that suggestion. We have left quite a lot of white space on both sides of the map to facilitate easy scrolling of the booking form.
The map is provided by Google Maps and there are some aspects of it that can not be fully controlled - dragging, zoom in and zoom out are some of them.

We will investigate the possibility to have such option at the back office but can not promise that it is possible.

Kind regards.

hello,

Thanks for your answer, this feature will be useful for mobile. There is parameter in Google Map Api like options = $.extend({ scrollwheel: false, navigationControl: false, mapTypeControl: false, scaleControl: false, draggable: false, mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP }, options);
I'm not a specialist, i'm just curious.
Thanks
Best regards

Hi again,
our developers actually managed to make the map not movable in mobile devices.
Please check on your side and let us know what you think.
Thank you for your suggestion and the research that you have done.

Kind regards.

Thanks very much to developers, very good job. It's much better on mobile with this feature. It's great because you have managed to do it only on mobile phones, congratulations.

I've another suggestion even for mobile, when the return trip is proposed Yes or No, if you click on "No", nothing happens (it's a bit destabilizing) and on mobile you can not see the button "SEE Price" it is below the map, would it be possible to : on click, to go to an anchor "SEE PRICE".

Hi Jean,
glad that you like the new map functionality.
Return tip Yes/No was supposed to be a slider between Yes and No but then we had a suggestion to make some space between the two so it's easier to click on Mobile but you are right "No" at the moment doesn't do anything if "Yes" wasn't selected beforehand.
I will forward your suggestion to our development team and see if we can come up with an elegant solution here.

Regarding "See Price" button on mobile - it is positioned after the map so the user actually sees the map first before they click on "See Price", if this bothers you then you can turn off the Map for Mobiles all together at the back office > Dashboard > Settings > Design settings > Design 2.

Hope this helps.
Kind regards.

Hi Jean,

We have added a little change in Return section, now only one button will be visible at a time. Initially, it will be YES, clicking on it toggles between Yes and No. Please check and let us know if you find any problem.

Best regards
