This is where I don’t get it…: Under Internal Link/Googleap, there will be three options for linking to the GoogleMap component. With Simple, you can display only a single destination. Standard and advanced will allow you to choose a category of destinations to display on the map. Fill in details and specifications. Click on Save button.

I have only google standard layout???
