I have installed the widget as instructed and received a new API code from google to enter in the config file but I still get the "this web site needs a different Google Maps API key..." and then "Browser is not map compatible! Maps will not be shown" in chrome, IE and FireFox.

any ideas what might be wrong?

Thx

I also had a similar problem with the Map Widget. The API key in the config file wasn't working for me and so I manually added it to the controller.

I changed line 32 on the MapWidget.php from;

Requirements::javascript("http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=".$MapsWidgetAPIKey);

to this (add your Google API key);

Requirements::javascript("http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=ADD-YOUR-API-KEY-HERE");

This worked for me.
