setBounds, setZoom, and panTo on GeoSearch React InstantSearch Widget

With React InstantSearch.js, I can’t seem to reach the map object to manipulate it.

The goal is to accomplish what this fiddle is demo’ing:

I want to reserve a portion of the map (provided by GoogleMapsLoader) for displaying results / cards. The fiddle shows it as a “Tile Overlay”.

The purpose is to display a full page map but reserve the top 50% for markers and the bottom 50% for cards (as a slider).

If I can snag the google map object in your widget, I think I can take it from there.

Is this possible?
