FEATURE: Google Maps v3

Wed Apr 03, 2013 8:11 pm

Note: for an updated version of this and other articles, we recommend you to check our knowledge base here

FEATURE: Google Maps v3

How to install

1. Login to SiteAdmin
2. Go to Plugins
3. Go to "Get More Plugins"
4. Install "Google Maps"

How to activate

If you have a Google Maps Enterprise key, or if you have a Google Maps key from GpsGate you do not need to do anything after upgrade.

If you have a "free" Google Maps key, you need to create a new "free" v3 key. Follow the steps below:

1. Visit the APIs Console at https://code.google.com/apis/console and log in with your Google Account.
2. Click the Services link from the left-hand menu.
3. Activate the Google Maps API v3 service.
4. Click the API Access link from the left-hand menu. Your API key is available from the API Access page, in the Simple API Access section. Maps API applications use the Key for browser apps.
5. Copy and paste the generated key-code into the text field under SiteAdmin -> Maps -> Google Maps -> Free Key.

Hello
For now I just want to update Google maps V3, but I cannot do it because support expired.

Do you know what will happen with version V2?
We still be able to use it in GGS?

do you offer pay per plugin update?

Only Google knows when they will stop supporting v2. They have indicated that they will do it.

We do not offer "pay per plugin update".

We have a hosted solution of GPSGATE in a local server. We are not using any Google API free key. We are using the map available to Gpsgate users in the tracking applications. Shoule we have to buy Google API key sperately? what is the advantage we or our custoemrs will get?

Hi Johan,

I accidentally paste and save the API key from the google to the Premium Key instead to the free key. Will it affect my gpsgate server?

If you use the wrong/invalid key or paste on the wrong field it will not be used and you won't get the full quota from Google, or worst case block your usage. It's Google's rules that will apply.
Easy to fix, simply delete and paste key in correct field and click save. You can do that as many times as you like :)

@piter197

open

\IIS\Resources\ScriptPlugins\com.GpsGate\Google Maps\css\search_box.css

edit the width:140px; line to make the search box "longer"... (ex. width:280px;)

BuddyTracker broken by this?

VT works well with the GoogleMaps v3 key but BT says

Code: Select all

---------------------------
Message from webpage
---------------------------
Google has disabled use of the Maps API for this application. The provided key is not a valid Google API Key, or it is not authorized for the Google Maps Javascript API v2 on this site. If you are the owner of this
application, you can learn about obtaining a valid key here: http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/javascript/v2/introduction.html#Obtaining_Key
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------
How to solve? Can one enter a v2 key for BT or (when) will BT be updated to use maps v3?
At least SiteAdmin|Maps only has one field to enter a "Free API Key".

How many users do you have in BT? Please consider migrating them to VT. If you need assistance in this process contact support @ gpsgate . com

BT has not been updated for 5 years. Do not use it!! :-)

thanks for replying, johan
And no problem, I just 'created' the BT. Thought it might be useful...
