custom control using jquery gmap extension

I would like to create a custom control for google maps from where a user can pick a marker to locate their business.

I have found tutorials of adding custom controls using java-script but none fits my need. :unsure:

What i want is to create is a control which functions like the street view control in the google map page. That is a custom control from which a user can pick a marker and drop it on the map.

Here is a photo of the control I am referring to


Any help will be greatly appreciated…

I am still open to any ideas, whether the solution will use a different extension, or any other method
