Description lubehoer 2021-09-07 14:28:35 UTC
any chance to get Google Maps Satellite View working with the "new" Google API? Maybe in the near future?
Or is there another Satellite View for propper positioning in progress?
I need it daily ...
Cheers, Ludger

The reason is not a "new" Google API. Google would like to have access to a billing account - credit card, in order to be able to invoice the costs if the monthly free map volume is exceeded. Unfortunately, Google does not accept our PayPal account. We are not ready to provide our private credit cards. For me, Google Maps is dead, we're considering trying Bing Maps.

Hi Maik,
Bing Maps would be great. I hope it comes with the next digiKam upgrade?!
