auto center map with multiple markers in google maps

//create empty LatLngBounds object
var bounds = new google.maps.LatLngBounds();
var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();    

for (i = 0; i < locations.length; i++) {  
  var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
    position: new google.maps.LatLng(locations[i][1], locations[i][2]),
    map: map
  });

  //extend the bounds to include each marker's position
  bounds.extend(marker.position);

  google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', (function(marker, i) {
    return function() {
      infowindow.setContent(locations[i][0]);
      infowindow.open(map, marker);
    }
  })(marker, i));
}

//now fit the map to the newly inclusive bounds
map.fitBounds(bounds);

//(optional) restore the zoom level after the map is done scaling
var listener = google.maps.event.addListener(map, "idle", function () {
    map.setZoom(3);
    google.maps.event.removeListener(listener);
});

Here is what the above code is Doing:
1. Create an empty LatLngBounds object
2. Loop through your markers array
3. Extend the bounds to include each marker's position
4. Adjust the map bounds to new bounding box
5. (optional) restore the zoom level after the map is done scaling
