[Resolved] Console error says Sensor not required for the Google Maps API

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

When using the Toolset Maps plugin to plot information on Google Maps, sometimes an error may appear in the console. It warns that the Google Maps API no longer requires the “sensor” variable in the URL. Certain features of Toolset Maps still require the sensor variable. This error does not cause any actual issues for users. If you get similar console messages, it’s safe to ignore them.

Getting browser error in console.

"Google Maps API warning: SensorNotRequired: hidden link"

The Google Maps API no longer requires the sensor variable in the URL. Please update your code for the Google Maps integration.

Thanks!

"The sensor parameter is no longer required for the Google Maps JavaScript API. It won't prevent the Google Maps JavaScript API from working correctly, but we recommend that you remove the sensor parameter from the script element."

No worries - it's just your cleanup robot wanted to close the thread. Might want to speak to your devs about their hasty autobot too. Thanks

I think there should be a third option, for it is not resolved, yet I also do not need more assistance.
