Google Maps extension not displaying

Hi all,

I have downloaded the Google maps cluster extension and I am trying to create the maps object and am getting "This page can't load Google Maps correctly" message. After some research it looks like after 2016 Google updated their terms of use for the maps API and you have to get your own API Key and update it within the javascript file for the extension. However, I don't have a javascript editor installed on my computer in order to make the update.

Has anyone else had this issue or know how to get around it without getting your own API Key from Google?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Try to use this example.

Chart Properties >> Color >> Background frame


hi Linda,

That it's because the new policies of google requires a Key for their API for Maps; you can read more in Overview  |  Maps JavaScript API  |  Google Developers

By other way you need to add the key, if you have the last version of these extension, look for the field to introduce you key; on another way of you another extension with google maps; look in the code of the extension and add it.


We can do it without API key also but only for  learning purpose on local machine.

Have you installed the .qar file first ?
