Google Maps and Swipe Menu

Hi all,

The swipe menu works fine in my app and when I use my finger to swipe the menu in from the left, it works.

I have a google map on the front page. Of course, if I try to swipe in the menu with my finger on google maps, it will just move me around the map. I would like to be able to swipe in the menu on the very left portion of google maps almost touching edge of phone (most users would probably navigate google maps within center) . Is this possible, and how?
