Dynamic Maps in PowerApps ?

Here's the situation:

On the click of a button, I'd like to open up a map (be it Bing Maps or Google Maps), and on this map be able to move around to my desired location, place a pin there and validate my choice, such that when I do, variables named DesiredPositionLongitude and DesiredPositionLatitude update themselves with the longitude and latitude of the pin.

In all the videos I found about maps in PowerApps, people knew beforehand the coordinates and thus inserted an image representing a static map. Is there a way to actually have a dynamic map ?
TL;DR:
The goal is to open a map, navigate, place a pin and get the coordinates from said pin.

Currently not possible because we can't use the javascript version of Google Maps. You can use Google Maps Static Maps API and fool around with the parameters, but I don't think you can achieve you're goal.

Re: Dynamic Maps in PowerApps ?

or you can use Appsheet which already has this function...just kidding

the only way right now is to launch it in Google map.

Not sure if this is something Microsoft would solve in the near future
