Hi,
how to set default search string for Google map splunk app so that when app is opened default search is run and data is charted? I looked at maps.xml but there is so much xml that i can't seem to find appropriate place to insert:

<module name="HiddenSearch" autoRun="True">  
<param name="search">some search</param>

You can use the default parameter of the SearchBar module to pre-fill the value that is in the text box.

<module name="SearchBar" layoutPanel="splSearchControls-inline">
    <param name="useAssistant">true</param>
    <param name="useTypeahead">true</param>
    <param name="useOwnSubmitButton">False</param>
    <param name="default">sourcetype=access_combined | geoip clientip</param>

It doesn't allow you to execute it automatically though. You could create a simple dashboard instead, like this:

<view template="dashboard.html" stylesheet="dashboard.css">
  <label>Simple Google Maps Dashboard</label>
  <module name="AccountBar" layoutPanel="appHeader"/>
  <module name="AppBar" layoutPanel="navigationHeader"/>
  <module name="Message" layoutPanel="messaging">
    <param name="filter">*</param>
    <param name="clearOnJobDispatch">False</param>
    <param name="maxSize">1</param>
  </module>
  <module name="TitleBar" layoutPanel="viewHeader">
    <param name="actionsMenuFilter">dashboard</param>
  </module>  
  <module name="HiddenSearch" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1" autoRun="true">
    <param name="search">sourcetype=access_combined earliest=-4h | geoip clientip | geonormalize</param>
    <module name="GoogleMaps">
        <param name="height">500px</param>
    </module>
  </module>
</view>

This was a great suggestion. Is there anyway to effect the level of zoom?

Have a look at http://SPLUNKSERVER:8000/en-US/modules#Splunk.Module.GoogleMaps which parameters are supported currently. The you're probably interested in is zoomLevel. If you have suggestions for other things that should be configurable, let me know.
