[Pro] Google Maps API v3?

Hi,

Just stepping in here with something that might be of; interest, useful, or just muddying the water.

http://mapmaker.donkeymagic.co.uk/

I did see something somewhere about changing the ‘pins’ to different icons but not readily to mind.

s

ps/ I haven’t tried imbedding the code to see if it works.

Well, all I know is that softpress made this a very easy process with their built-in actions and now it’s become infinitely more difficult.

Personally, I like simple. :slight_smile:

I’m hoping softpress will have an update soon.

I had to redo a map on a clients website recently after it went dead. I did manage it, though granted it took a bit of head scratching figuring what google meant but I got there. Another time I had to create a iframe where I wished the map to be but had to create the map on a separate page using the FW map action, it worked, can’t figure the rational but it worked.

Blame google if anyone.

I like things simple too :slight_smile:

Help please.
Trying to apply Google map to my mobile website.

After I add the map is asking me to get the new key from Google, I got it but I’m not sure how to make it work.

I try several times to generate the key while logged in my Google account but the key does not work.

Anybody was able to do this and explain to me how is supposed to activate the new API key?

Thank you

I think whatever Google has done has broken the Freeway Pro action to enable this. I hope that when softpress updates Freeway Pro they add other mapping options, like MapQuest, Bing, etc.

Make sure you are creating the key for the website its destined for and see if that works.

Stuck!

Thank you for all answers. I have read and try everything and is not working. Keep saying need a new AIP key.

Could be that I did not update the billing section? but my site will not have over 25.00 requests per day, so I did not do that.

Are the developers of Freeway Pro aware of this? any news on when an upgrade will happen?

Anybody using other software as back up to build mobile websites with templates?

Sorry for many question, but I need to move forward.

Joe Billings, who wrote the Action (and is the Managing DIrector of Softpress) replied in another thread that he’s aware of the problem and working on a solution. He’s much better at Action writing than I am, so I am certain that what we will end up with is something that completely abstracts away the problem.

As a stop-gap, Tim Plumb wrote a static map Action, which just writes out a clever URL to a picture, and doesn’t need an API key at all. The limitation of that is that the resulting map is not navigable, no drive-by-turn directions or whatnot. But it will show a pin on the map where your location is, and you can then link that image to the Google Map for further dynamic amazingness.

I’m hoping Joe comes up with an update soon as I really liked the simplicity of the softpress mapping action.

Did you use the Static Action Map?

No, that was the one was giving so much hard time read my earlier post. I don’t need the API key any longer.
It was easy for me because i build my mobile websites in a photoshop image and creating the link was a easy.

Now, my next issue will be how to design mobile website for retina display, meaning a smart approach to converting the image for retina display. Just in case any doing it please post.

Interesting - but I haven’t had an issue with the new API - must have been lucky!
