Google maps not up to date?

Postby maverick1989 » Mon Oct 04, 2010 10:36 pm

So I am getting some of the maps to display with my application, but that is the problem - only SOME of the maps are displaying correctly. Many places show me a screen that says "We do not have imagery for this area", or it just shows a blank screen. I have gotten some places in central Asia (Mongolia, western China etc) to show up and many places in the African deserts. Also the open oceans. One thing I realized is that none of the places that worked had any buildings or habitation in them. Although this seems unlikely, I think it has something to do with the maps of some locations not showing up. I have given my code below. Any help will be appreciated

Also, if it helps, it was working before I tried getting an API key to use MapView instead. I changed my code back to what it was and it started giving me errors.

That is very odd... Normally, if it was a key problem, it would ALWAYS show a blank grid... The fact that some areas show correctly and some areas give an error message is just weird!

The first thing I would do is try creating a new keystore and then generating a new API key for that specific keystore.
