   i) Using Destination of Push button as a source in chart component and chart Destination should be maintained as source of GMAPS Plugin.

  ii) Or by using simple Function/IF statement.

  14)I have use 2nd method and this statement was link to the GMAPS Plugin as a source:

    Based on this example and the need to determine current location, we also just added a new mobile property that allows you to retrieve current location and then reverse geocode that location to a proper address. So at least while you are on your mobile device you can automatically get your current location and request your business data accordingly.
