Hello

How to use in mobile?

Hi Bima,

You will have to be a little more specific... what are you struggling with?

You probably will find this other post relevant, it includes a few pointers to apps that use Google Maps Mobile that you can use as guidance.

Hope this helps!

Is there any google app plugin for mobile application as this API works only for web application

Hi Lovish Goyal,

What do you mean this only works for web applications?This is the Mobile version of the Google Maps component, it was designed for mobile apps not web applications. What is the behaviour you are experiencing?

There is a Google Maps Plugin as well, you can find it on the Forge, but last time I checked it was more limited in what you could achieve with it.

Hi Lovish, 


"Google Maps JavaScript API error: ApiNotActivatedMapError"

--> it means that your Maps JavaScriprt API is not activated. You can read more about this error on this link: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/error-messages#checking-errors


You will need to get an API key. You can follow this link https://developers.google.com/maps/gmp-get-started


Hi Bima,

For a sample mobile Google map integration, you can check out this one from Forge:

Hope it helps.
