I have just learned that Google will turn down the v2 API on November 19.

I looked at it briefly and we use 4 classes in v2 that have no equivalent  
in v3. This is unfortunate because I will not have the free time to review  
the new API and rewrite the code in the next 2 days, before November 19.

They write that after the switch they will serve a special wrapped version  
that may work with most simple applications. So it may still work. :-/

If the recipe needs to be disabled, instead of incorporating the map into  
the page, the wiki will render links to the Google maps site. Clicking on  
the link will open the same map centered and zoomed to the position you had  

When disabling the recipe, insert this InterMap entry to your page  
[[Site.InterMap]] :

  GMap:   http://maps.google.com/maps?$1


P.S. I strongly feel that instead of GoogleMaps my sites should use the free  
open source and open content OpenStreetMap. Unfortunately I haven't yet  
found the time to look into writing a recipe with the GMap features for  
OSMap. See however this recipe:
