Changing area displayed on Google maps

I am using the Debut theme and have a maps section active.  It works, it returns a map image with a pin at our address.  

 

The problem is that the area shown on the map is just a little too small.  It needs to be a little bigger to include the interstate exit.  I mean, the map on the page can stay the same size, it just needs to zoom out a little.  It's a static image so that can't happen.  I believe the request to the Google maps API has to be changed?  

 

i tried viewing the theme's map section code but I can't find the actual call to the API.  Any suggestions?

 

FYI, the address is 314 W. 9th St. Ferdinand IN 47532

 

Thanks!

Hey I fixed it!   I added a bunch of text to the text box floating on top of the map.  The text box expanded, which expanded the edges of the map to include what I wanted.  Same level of map detail, same zoom level, just moved the edges.  The map image is huge now but I'll take it.
