John,

Yes, as far as the google maps, there wasn't a way to pass parameters.
If the gmap=### was changed, that was me changing the default. Oops.
As far as the APRSWorld Map's, you can with the methods listed in the
cgi parameters list.

I agree, It shouldn't be difficult to write a gmap cgi, maybe there's a
way to pursued Steve to write one up,

Regards,

Matt, KB1IKN
