How to add a Google map window
A map like the sample below can be generated in your Google tools account. See embed a map at Google Maps for support. You'll need to setup a Google tools account to generate this map. You will be prompted at the site to create this account if you do not now have one.

As well as setting up a Google tools account, you may also need to generate a Google API key, although this may no longer be required.

Note: All help and support for adding this map can be found on the Google website. Allwebco does not offer support for Google map integration.
