Prevent Zoom When Scrolling

It is a common frustration that a map will zoom in or out as you scroll past it. This is a native behavior of Google Maps, but it can be managed via the gestureHandling parameter of the mapOptions value.

Restrict Gesture Handling

var options = {
    'mapOptions': {
        'gestureHandling': 'cooperative'

var map =, options);

Within the context of the mapOptions value, you can indirectly pass a multitude of settings to the Google API. Consult the Google documentation (opens new window) for complete details regarding gestureHandling.
