How to Remove Bubble – Google Maps

To remove the Address or Info Bubble on Google Map embed code you will need to set iwloc parameter something other than default on source attribute of iframe tag. First copy your embed from google map and paste on any text editor and find check if the iwloc parameter already exists if it exists then remove its value and add iwloc=near. If the parameter doesn’t exists then just add it to the url. With an & in the end (&iwloc=near).

Here is an working example. Google map generates the code:

<iframe width="320" height="250" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&q=sutcliffe+pharmacy+chicago&fb=1&gl=us&hq=sutcliffe+pharmacy&hnear=0x880e2c3cd0f4cbed:0xafe0a6ad09c0c000,Chicago,+IL&sqi=2&view=map&cid=10644809077957187579&vpsrc=6&ll=41.955086,-87.649763&spn=0.003989,0.006866&z=16&output=embed"></iframe>

Changes to (check last parameter of the source url):

<iframe width="320" height="250" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&q=sutcliffe+pharmacy+chicago&fb=1&gl=us&hq=sutcliffe+pharmacy&hnear=0x880e2c3cd0f4cbed:0xafe0a6ad09c0c000,Chicago,+IL&sqi=2&view=map&cid=10644809077957187579&vpsrc=6&ll=41.955086,-87.649763&spn=0.003989,0.006866&z=16&output=embed&iwloc=near"></iframe>
