Nomads Connected The technical foundation on which Nomads Connected was built (Google Maps API) has undergone a major change. Google discontinued version 2 of the free Google Maps API effective Nov 19, 2013. From this day only version 3, which uses a different interface and has a different (i.e. not free) licence model, is available. Google provides a wrapper for v3 that tries to emulate the API v2, but it works only for simple cases. Nomads Connected is a rather complex application and makes heavy use of the Google Maps API, including some 3rd party components. Therefore, porting the application to API version 3 is a serious project which requires manpower that is simply not available for this task.
