GoogleMapsWidget For Flutter

pub package likes popularity pub points

A widget for flutter developers to easily integrate google maps in their apps. It can be used to make polylines from a source to a destination, and also handle a driver's realtime location (if any) on the map.


  • Make polylines (route) between two locations by providing the latitude and longitude for both the locations.
  • The route is customizable in terms of color and width.
  • The plugin also offers realtime location tracking for a driver(if any) and shows a marker on the map which updates everytimes the driver's location changes.
  • All the markers are customizable.
  • onTap callbacks are implemented for all the markers and their info windows to easily handle user interaction.
  • Almost all the parameters defined in google_maps_flutter for the GoogleMap widget can be passed as arguments to the widget.

Specify your API key in the application manifest android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml:

<manifest ...
  <application ...
    <meta-data android:name=""
               android:value="YOUR KEY HERE"/>


Specify your API key in the application delegate ios/Runner/AppDelegate.m:

#include "AppDelegate.h"
#include "GeneratedPluginRegistrant.h"
#import "GoogleMaps/GoogleMaps.h"

@implementation AppDelegate

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application
    didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
  [GMSServices provideAPIKey:@"YOUR KEY HERE"];
  [GeneratedPluginRegistrant registerWithRegistry:self];
  return [super application:application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:launchOptions];

Or in your swift code, specify your API key in the application delegate ios/Runner/AppDelegate.swift:

import UIKit
import Flutter
import GoogleMaps

@objc class AppDelegate: FlutterAppDelegate {
  override func application(
    _ application: UIApplication,
    didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?
  ) -> Bool {
    GMSServices.provideAPIKey("YOUR KEY HERE")
    GeneratedPluginRegistrant.register(with: self)
    return super.application(application, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: launchOptions)


Modify web/index.html

Get an API Key for Google Maps JavaScript API. Get started here. Modify the <head> tag of your web/index.html to load the Google Maps JavaScript API, like so:


  <!-- // Other stuff -->

  <script src=""></script>


To use this plugin, add google_maps_widget as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

      sdk: flutter

First and foremost, import the widget.

import 'package:google_maps_widget/google_maps_widget.dart';

You can now add a GoogleMapsWidget widget to your widget tree and pass all the required parameters to get started. This widget will create a route between the source and the destination LatLng's provided.

    apiKey: "YOUR KEY HERE",
    sourceLatLng: LatLng(40.484000837597925, -3.369978368282318),
    destinationLatLng: LatLng(40.48017307700204, -3.3618026599287987),

Sample Usage

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:google_maps_widget/google_maps_widget.dart';

void main() {

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      home: SafeArea(
        child: Scaffold(
          body: GoogleMapsWidget(
            apiKey: "YOUR KEY HERE",
            sourceLatLng: LatLng(40.484000837597925, -3.369978368282318),
            destinationLatLng: LatLng(40.48017307700204, -3.3618026599287987),

            //////////////    OPTIONAL PARAMETERS    //////////////

            routeWidth: 2,
            sourceMarkerIconInfo: MarkerIconInfo(
              assetPath: "assets/images/house-marker-icon.png",
            destinationMarkerIconInfo: MarkerIconInfo(
              assetPath: "assets/images/restaurant-marker-icon.png",
            driverMarkerIconInfo: MarkerIconInfo(
              assetPath: "assets/images/driver-marker-icon.png",
              assetMarkerSize: Size.square(125),
              rotation: 15.0,
              // ... and more
            // mock stream
            driverCoordinatesStream: Stream.periodic(
              Duration(milliseconds: 500),
              (i) => LatLng(
                40.47747872288886 + i / 10000,
                -3.368043154478073 - i / 10000,
            updatePolylinesOnDriverLocUpdate: true,
            sourceName: "This is source name",
            driverName: "Alex",
            onTapDriverMarker: (currentLocation) {
              print("Driver is currently at $currentLocation");
            totalTimeCallback: (time) => print(time),
            totalDistanceCallback: (distance) => print(distance),

            /// and a lot more...
