Google maps and unnecessary refresh

Hi All

I am using Ionic to display my sensors at various locations. Each sensor device will send frequency data, therefore i am preforming a http get every 10 seconds on my Ionic App.

The perticular page will get updated with my the new data, but it seems like the google map is also getting refreshed even though the GPS locations are the same.

The reason why i mention this is because google invoice shows google map is being executed over few 1K times.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is it possible to refresh the map only on page load?
