library(RgoogleMaps);   # download a static map from the Google server
library(geomapdata);    # Topographic and Geologic Mapping
lbrary(PBSmapping);     # Draw Maps and Implement Other GIS Procedures

my_map = GetMap(center=my_center, zoom =my_zoom ,
 		destfile=my_out_file ,maptype = "mapmaker-hybrid",

?GetMap for more info

STEP2: You can add text
tmp = TextOnStaticMap(my_map,lat = my_markers_1[,"lat"], 
			lon = my_markers_1[,"lon"],
			col="red", cex=1.1, add=F)

# STEP 3: you can add points 
tmp = PlotOnStaticMap(my_map,lat = my_markers[,"lat"], 
		lon = my_markers[,"lon"], cex=2.,pch=10,col=c("black"),
add=T is importent

# STEP 4: You can add lines 
tmp = PlotOnStaticMap(my_map,lat = my_markers_2[,"lat"], lon =
 		my_markers_2[,"lon"], col=c("blueviolet"), add=T, 
		FUN = lines, lwd = 3);

I hope will help !
