Click on google map event is not happening only for emulator and ion view


I have this code below for click event on google map.

        // click event on map to draw X marker and set Post location
        google.maps.event.addListener(map_origin, 'click', function(event) {
            console.log("Click on map");//debug
            var location = {
                lon: event.latLng.lng()

it works for ‘ionic serve’ but it does not recognize click on map in emulate ios or ion view in device…


you need to handle touche events. for that you add an overlay to your map:

var overlay = new google.maps.OverlayView();
overlay.draw = function () {};


@bengtler hmm I was not able to find documentation about “touch” kind of event under OverlayView.

What I used for now is

google.maps.event.addListener(map_origin, 'mousedown', function(){ ... }

But this would trigger everytime I drag around map since it will occur on mousedown.
Could you give me more detail about setting up the click event?
