Google Maps shows “For development purposes only”

  • A+

Google Maps show the message "For development purposes only" when I try to show it in my webpage:

Google Maps shows “For development purposes only”

How could I make this message go away?

My code is like that:

  <script src=""></script>   <script type="text/javascript">      function initialize() {        var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(50.5792659,8.6744471);      var centerMap = new google.maps.LatLng(50.5792659,8.6744471);      var div = document.getElementById('map'); 

Then later I have

     '<p><a href=",8.6744471/@50.579266,8.674447,16z" target="_blank">Route berechnen</a></p>'+ 

I don't see where this message originates from.


Google Maps is no longer free. You have to associate a credit card so that you can get billed if your site has requests that exceed the $200 credit they give you monthly for free. That is why you get the watermarked maps.
