Help setting up Google Maps in Qlikview

I have referred to post Steps for beginners to implement Google Maps in Qlikview but the files in there have not been helpful for me. I followed each step in the word document but continue to get errors when trying to reload data. Also customer_info file does not match what is in the directions. The error I get when reloading is:

The download failed

Data:

  LOAD

  '' as FirstName,

  '' as LastName,

  '' as ProductSold,

  'Maastricht' as Address,

  subfield([Response/Placemark/Point/coordinates], ',' ,1) AS longitude,

  subfield([Response/Placemark/Point/coordinates], ',' ,2) AS latitude

  FROM [http://maps.google.com/maps/geo?q=Maastricht&output=xml&oe=utf8&sensor=false&key=XXYYZZ] (XmlSimple, Table is [kml])

I really am not great when it comes to code/programming, and I was hoping the directions would be as straightforward as the reviews make them seem. has there been a change to the google maps API, or the files I am loading, which are causing problems with setting up the Google Maps Extension?

Any help/further documentation would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Help setting up Google Maps in Qlikview

I found Geoqlik to be very easy to get startet with. Just activate webview and you are almost there, it guides you through via a wizard.

Only problem is that with the trial version you cannot save the analytics you do.

On the other hand I read that google maps is not free anymore?
