GPS Map doesn't show up [SOLVED]
« on: November 08, 2015, 09:39:42 AM »
Hi,

I'm running trial version of PM 5 (16765) under Mac Os 10.9.5.

When I launch set GPS coordinates command the map doesn't show up and the panel is blank. The reload button doesn't work.

What's wrong?

Thanks,
Alessandro

I don't know.  It could be a temporary outage.  I just tested the feature on my Mac OS X 10.9.5 system and the map works just fine.  I can zoom in/out, pan around, enter an address and make the map go there, etc.

It's working fine for me.

Hi Kirk,

the function never worked from the first day I installed PM.

Thanks,
A.

Hmm, strange. It works fine for me too; the map gets shown.

Have you tried reinstalling PM already?

Are you otherwise able to view Google Maps in Safari?  PM uses an embedded web browser and Google Maps for all of the GPS mapping features in PM.  The embedded browser supplied by the OS forms the basis of Safari so I'd like to know if Safari itself has problems with Google Maps on your system.

Are you possibly using some firewall software like LittleSnitch to limit incoming and outgoing network connections by app and port? It might be that PM or the webkit daemon (or whatever it uses to connect to the google's API) is blocked from connecting to google servers by that. I would check the firewall config if you have one installed. I am no longer on 10.9.5 but as far as I remember the GPS map worked fine there.

Solved.

It was LittleSnitch (shame on me).

Thanks to everyone.
