Add Marker to Google Map (Google Maps Android API v2)


To add marker to Google Map of Google Maps Android API v2:
                        LatLng targetLatLng = new LatLng(lat, lon);
                        MarkerOptions markerOptions =
                                new MarkerOptions().position(targetLatLng).title(strTitle);
                        mMap.addMarker(markerOptions);

Modify from last example "Set map type for Google Maps Activity using Google Maps Android API v2" to add feature to add markers on Google Maps Activity.



Edit values/strings.xml to add string resource of "menu_addmarkers"
<resources>
    <string name="app_name">AndroidStudioMapApp</string>
    <string name="title_activity_maps">Map</string>
    <string name="menu_legalnotices">Legal Notices</string>
    <string name="menu_about">About</string>
    <string name="menu_addmarkers">Add Markers</string>
</resources>


Edit menu/activity_main.xml, to add menu option of Add Markers:
