I'm making an ajax call every x number of seconds to get lat/lon coordinates from a server and I would like to use this data to update the position of a marker in realtime. I only have a single marker on the map, so how would I access that marker and move it as the coordinates change?

I currently have something like this:
$("#map").data("kendoMap").markers.items[0].location([0, 0])

But its not working for me, is there a method I can call?

Just a further update to this post:

Here's the initialization code:

$("#map").kendoMap({
                        center: [51.505, -0.09],
                        zoom: 3,
                        layers: [{
                            type: "bing",
                            // IMPORTANT: This key is locked to demos.telerik.com
                            // Please replace with your own Bing Key
                            key: "somekey"
                        }],
                        markers: [{
                            location: [30.268107, -97.744821],
                            shape: "pinTarget",
                            tooltip: {
                                template: "Lon:#= location.lng #,<br /> Lat:#= location.lat #"
                            }
                        }]
                    });

Hi,

I don't see anything wrong with your approach. I've tried it on this test page and it appears to work:
http://trykendoui.telerik.com/uqOJ/2

Do you get any error messages in the console?

We'll add documentation for these methods as soon as possible.
