Just as a followup, for the archives:
geom_rect does work. The aes for geom_rect requires xmax, xmin, ymax, ymin, - which are the limits of the bounding box. So:
> ggmap(myMap) + geom_rect(aes(xmin=-130,xmax=-125,ymin=30,ymax=35),colour="white",fill="red”)
should work. geom_polygon will work also (which could be convenient for doing the groupings), if a data frame of the following sort is created:
> ggmap(myMap) + geom_polygon(data=test,aes(x = lon, y = lat, group=group),color="white",fill="red”)
should also work. The more I look at various maps the more I like just using ggplot2, Eric Anderson gave me this example:
> w <- map_data("worldHires", ylim = c(-25,50), xlim = c(-180,-70))
> z=ggplot() + geom_polygon(data = w, aes(x=long, y = lat, group = group), fill = "grey80") +coord_fixed(1.3, xlim = c(-180,-70), ylim = c(-25,50)) + theme_bw()
then either of the two geoms can be added to “z” to make the desired plot.

To put this in context, I actually have 360 squares which have been clustered by some criteria, and I want to color them all based on the cluster number of the box. but if I can figure out how to do the simple problem above I can extend it to the more general problem.
