Bonjour,

As per mapsplatform.googleblog.com/2018/05/intr...e-maps-platform.html Google Maps users are now required to open a billing account and provide a credit card number.

This is not an appealing prospect or simple operation for many of my clients.

I have been able to switch to www.openstreetmap.org for simple location maps and this works reasonably well.

Is there any plan to provide any alternatives to Google Maps in GMapFP?

Thanks and keep up the good work.

You already know this happened: Google Maps users are now required to open a billing account and provide a credit card number.
The team is down: Tutorial: How to create an API key for Google GMapFP is invalid, Google has made big changes there.
Can you expect the transition to openstreetmaps in the foreseeable future?
Because the fear in the Google payment system is huge. What prevents potential abuse? Robotically increase the number of clicks. And we pay.
