If you are here you probably received an error something like this:
The Google Maps API server rejected your request. The “sensor” parameter specified in the request must be set to either “true” or “false”.

If you look closely at that link, there is a big part that says, “YOUR_API_KEY” and another part after “sensor” that says “SET_TO_TRUE_OR_FALSE.” Guess what you need to do? Simply enter in your API key and set the other value to either true or false. What that setting is, is just a feature that can use the GPS in the device used to access the page to generate the map. So if you set it to true, a mobile visitor may be able to see their own location on the map. But that’s all you have to do! It’s obviously pretty basic, but I can’t be the only one with this problem. Some of you trying to do more elaborate things may get this error message as well for different reasons. My guess is if you are seeing it, somewhere the “sensor” parameter is being mentioned but never defined properly. I have heard it can be case sensitive as well, make sure you do it all lower case. Hope this helps!
