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