      Does Google Maps Viewer No Longer Work in Filemaker unless you purchase Google API

      Post

           Hi,

           Google maps just doesn't work anymore on my Filemaker. I thought it may be to do with the custom web address I used, see below, but I just tried simply putting in "http://www.google.co.uk/maps" and I get the same reaction. It starts to load Google Maps then jumps back to the main Google page.

           I've been looking over the forum, and there's a lot of talk about custom html etc and new Google Maps, but I don't want any customisation, I just want to be able to view Google Maps on my FM Pro 13 web viewer.

           There is a lot of talk about needing Google Maps API, but it's not clear if this is the reason that it's no longer working on my FM https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/tutorial#api_key

           Going for the API seems like it will be learning curve to get it working, and I haven't contacted them, but it seems like you have to pay for it too if you're a business, I'm a small business, and I'm not sure if it's just for websites or filemaker like uses too http://www.google.com/enterprise/mapsearth/products/mapsapi.html

           Please let me know if you know as this seems to be a big feature of FM that no longer works unless you purchase Google API, and I've no idea how much that's going to cost.

           Also I'm using Lion for Mac.
