Loading Google Maps

Recommended Posts

Anyone having problems loading Google Maps on the GC website today?

For me, the little circle just goes around and around and it says it is loading maps ... but the maps don't load!

Yep, I'm getting that too. I ended up having to open the KML file for Google Earth, but even that's not working right.

Yeah, exactly the same in my case in Germany.

Same issue here. Both on IE 7.0.5730.13 and Firefox 3.0.8. It just keeps "loading Maps", yet the map never loads. :unsure:

BTW...got an update from Java earlier today. Not sure if that had any impact. Ver. 6 Update 13 Build 1.6.0_13-b03

Same problem here. Both IE8 and Safari.

 

Java updates aren't the issue, not related to Java Script.

Mine hasn't worked for over two hours. No Google Maps will load.

:) It just started working again.

 

hamsters... I think my browser loaded a cached version or something... it is still down. :unsure:

 

It will load the maps, but no cache data.

Anyone still having issues with this? I can't load maps or find caches via zip codes or address. Any suggestions? It's a nice day and I hate to see it wasting away....

Google Maps is running OK.

Google Earth is running OK.

The problem must be between some interface on the geocaching.com website and google maps.

Hopefully they'll get it fixed soon ... was planning on going Geocaching tomorrow! :unsure:

I'm having the same issues - sometimes no load of the map, sometimes the map and no caches, and once it actually gave me what I wanted - until I tried to move it.

I noticed that a lackey said that it was fixed.... but I am trying to get it to work with no success.... I have noticed that my area works, but not Illinois.

 

You would think that if they know that something is wrong that they would reply to this topic to let everyone know.

Well ... if everyone keeps posting ... maybe they'll notice.

It sure ain't fixed in Florida!

I'm not sure how to get their attention apart from using this section of the forums. :unsure:

Strange.. Last night the maps were so fast coming in on my simple dial up that I felt like should stay up all night getting everything I could use for the next month. Cached today and now want a revised map of the area where I was, and am getting nothing. Wonder why if they can get it working great once in awhile, they can't keep it working...

This is getting frustrating, I really wanted to go out caching this evening but I guess I'll have to wait until it's all fixed.

Google maps not working here either, using IE8.

We don't think it has anything to do with IE8 (or Firefox, or other providers) since previous posters have said they can't get the maps on IE7 or Firefox either.

It's something they have to fix at geocaching.com :unsure:

Well ...

It would have been kinda nice if geocaching.com had contacted us and recognized that there was a problem ... and then told us it had been fixed!

It works for me too now.

As someone else said in a previous post in this thread ... what are we paying "Premium" membership prices for? ... even though it is, actually, a nominal amount.

It worked for awhile, but now the maps are coming up, but the geocaches are not loading... At least for me, that is the case now...

It's just a little frustrating when a bug goes this long without an update from a moderator! Hey Groundspeak, where are you?

Java updates aren't the issue, not related to Java Script.

Java & JavaScript aren't the same thing. Not even close. Java updates will have no effect on JavaScript, and in this context, your JavaScript interpreter will only be updated if your web browser is updated.

So Google is rolling back their code? How long is this going to take? :unsure: It's getting pretty old!

This issue has been resolved since 3:30pm PST.

 

If you're still seeing it I suggest you clear your browser cache and try again.

I've refreshed the page - several times - and also deleted temporary internet files and I still have the problem.

Because if there weren't people actually supporting this website, there would be no one to look into these kinds of problems. At least not as quickly as this one got fixed.

I'm experiencing problems with google maps again.

When typing the address in the field and pressing OK, nothing happens, the good portion of the map does not show. If I scroll it by hand, it is very jumpy, and upon coming to the good place, the cache list does not refresh and keeps showing the Seattle caches.

I'm using Windows XP with Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8. Same problem with Explorer 6.0 which I almost never use anyway.

 

Anyone else experiencing the same problem?

It's working fine for me. I guess they fixed the problem.

 

I thought they would be too busy trying to be Geocaching referees...Looks like their advertisement revenue is paying off.

Yep, its the same for me. It started about 2 days ago. I have 2 days off and want to go caching, but this isnt looking good for that. I type in the town under "Zoom to Address" but it won't go. Sometimes it will but when I move the map it flies across the screen than it tells me its "parsing caches"

 

We really need help with this.
