When I follow the directions for installing by inserting the following in MYSITE/_CONFIG.PHP:
EditableGoogleMapSelectableField::$api_key = ABQIAAAAVl6l2mFrWO_iYsdKj2q7zhQZsr62tCq9UT--lZNx8crCYi83XRSvxwfvahQWD86LeX6MhJUSRbSKXg;

I get the following error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_DEC in /home3/islandro/public_html/connienimmon/mysite/_config.php on line 31

Any ideas?

Got it to work.
I just needed to add the quotes around the key:
As in
EditableGoogleMapSelectableField::$api_key ="ABQIAAAAVl6l2mFrWO_iYsdKj2q7zhQZsr62tCq9UT--lZNx8crCYi83XRSvxwfvahQWD86LeX6MhJUSRbSKXg";

yes, the installing instruction was bad

Installation Instructions
- Enter your google map API key in your mysite/_config.php file like

EditableGoogleMapSelectableField::$api_key = YOUR API KEY HERE;

should be better

EditableGoogleMapSelectableField::$api_key = "YOUR API KEY HERE";

This has been fixed in the module to make it a bit more clearer. But FYI - you quote every string in PHP, only time you don't is when you're referencing a constant (pre defined) value.
