Display users location on a Map

How do I display a dynamic map from a webworks app.


I can get a static map to show but I need it to scroll.


This works in firefox the right way but not on my curve os6:


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <script src="jquery-1.6.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">

       function init() {

            if (navigator.geolocation) {

                var lat = 0,
		        lng = 0;

                var myOptions = {
                    zoom: 10,
                    mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP

                var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map-canvas"), myOptions);

                function setCurrentLocation() {

                    var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng(lat, lng);

                    // Add a marker using the user_lat_long position
                    var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
                        position: latlng,
                        animation: google.maps.Animation.DROP,
                        map: map


                function gpsSuccess(pos) {
                    if (pos.coords) {
                        lat = pos.coords.latitude;
                        lng = pos.coords.longitude;
                    else {
                        lat = pos.latitude;
                        lng = pos.longitude;

                function gpsFail() {
                    //Geo-location is supported, but we failed to get your coordinates. Workaround here perhaps?

                navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(gpsSuccess, gpsFail, { enableHighAccuracy: true, maximumAge: 300000 });

<body onLoad="init();">
    <div id="map-canvas" style="height: 300px; width: 300px;">
        <!-- map loads here... -->
