            //THE MAP'S GETTILT() METHOD WILL ALWAYS REFLECT THE CURRENT TILT BEING SHOWN ON THE MAP; 
            //IF YOU SET A TILT ON A MAP AND THEN LATER REMOVE THAT TILT (BY ZOOMING THE MAP OUT, FOR EXAMPLE), THE MAP'S GETTILT() METHOD WILL RETURN 0.
            map.setTilt(45);//SET TILT 45 FOR MAP
            map.getClickableIcons(); //GET CLICKABLE ICONS ON MAPS
