Show My Location on Google Maps API v3

No, but adding your own marker based on current location is easy:

var myloc = new google.maps.Marker({
    clickable: false,
    icon: new google.maps.MarkerImage('//maps.gstatic.com/mapfiles/mobile/mobileimgs2.png',
                                                    new google.maps.Size(22,22),
                                                    new google.maps.Point(0,18),
                                                    new google.maps.Point(11,11)),
    shadow: null,
    zIndex: 999,
    map: // your google.maps.Map object
});

if (navigator.geolocation) {
    navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(function(pos) {
        var me = new google.maps.LatLng(pos.coords.latitude, pos.coords.longitude);
        myloc.setPosition(me);
    }, function(error) {
        // ...
    });
}

We have made such a component for Google Maps API v3. Anybody can use in custom projects to add a control showing current geolocation with just one line of code:

var geoloccontrol = new klokantech.GeolocationControl(map, mapMaxZoom);

after including in the HTML header this JavaScript:

<script src="https://cdn.klokantech.com/maptilerlayer/v1/index.js"></script>

See:

for an example code and documentation.

Show My Location Control on Google Maps API v3

It adds the standard control to the map - and once tapped - it shows the blue circle around your location with size derived from precision of the location data available. If you don't drag the map it will keep you positioned once you move.

This control has been developed for viewer automatically generated by http://www.maptiler.com/ software - which creates tiles for map overlays and custom layers made from images and raster geodata.

you have to do it by your own. Here is a piece of code to add "Your Location" button. HTML

<div id="map">Map will be here</div>

CSS

#map {width:100%;height: 400px;}

var map;
var faisalabad = {lat:31.4181, lng:73.0776};
