indeed seen intermittent issues from Google with their Google Maps service in
the past days. We could
also see the problem here last week at specific times only but today we do not
see the issue. When we
key to TMSFMXWebGMaps.APIKey before launching the map, so I'd recommend as a
precaution to request such (free) key and assign it.
Bruno replied to my direct support request and told me that you need to put the API Key in the constructor of the Tform (or the Tframe in my case). I did that and it made no difference. I'm not sure this is a TMS problem, because sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't. The problem is that we have no visibility of the actual error that would be posted in the Developer's Console so we don't know what the problem is.
Bruno replied to myself regarding this issue too in regards to a support ticket. His fix was to set the WebGMaps.APIKey to out own API key. This is something that we are already doing and it's still not working for us.
The maps goes down in the middle of the day and comes back up around the same time that Google resets it's API limit count.
This makes me to believe that somewhere there is a hard coded API key which is being used by TMS which may be going over quota (which would explain why at a certain time of the day the map software stops working and then continues to work early in the morning in the UK) I believe the daily request pool resets at 12:00am PST.
We also see the issue at this time when no API Key is assigned.
After assigning the API Key, the issue goes away.
