[STICKY] Google Maps shows error message when viewed from Internet

If you are able to view the site from your network without any issues but you get an Oops! Something went wrong message instead of a map when you view the site from the Internet then it is probably because you have not registered a Google Maps API key with the program.

You can read up on the issue (and how to solve it) here:

When I enter my correct API KEY, the Virtual Radar Server works fine (even for a whole day) and this until I restart my browser and log in again with "http://127.0.0.1/VirtualRadar/desktop.html", then he gives the message "For development purposes only", strange, why can my API Key only work once a day in the Virtual Radar Server?
Something to think about :roll:

Google changed their API usage terms. Now you have to pay in order to use the API. You have to have a billing account in order to use the API.

Just get out your Visa card and everything works back like before ;)

Hi:
I am also having the same issue even though I provided billing information when I requested the API key. Every time I try to load the VRS webpage I get a Retired Version and a No API keys warning and I get an error saying “You have exceeded your request quota for this APIl. The map load limit on the key is 1000 loads per day. Currently, I can’t get one to load. Thanks
