If you miss eMaps like I do, check out Vectorial Map. It doesn't include Google maps, but it is a nice OSM client with many features similar to eMaps.

eMaps no longer works :-(

This message appears on the developer's site: "I'm very sad to tell you that eMaps does not work anymore. Google has turned down Maps API services used by eMaps to display contents.I hope to come back soon!"

Hopefully he will - it was a *very* useful app!

Hm, the developer stated it will load the map, but all other functions won´t work. Sry I didn´t test all before posting.

eMaps was a great app until Google pulled the back end for it. I have been searching for an alternative since that dreadful day a few months ago. The best solution that I have been able to turn up is Fluid, the site specific browser.

With Fluid, you can create a web app for Google Maps. It's pretty simple to do. All you need to give it to create a web app is a URL.

Fluid is free, but there is a paid version for some extra features, such as separate cookie storage.

I'm another daily eMaps user with my fingers crossed, hoping that Emanuele brings eMaps back. In addition to Google Maps and Street View, I appreciated the access eMaps provided to Open Street Map. If you're looking for an OSM map replacement, try the free myOSM on the Mac App Store. It's from the developer of myTracks, which gets 4.5 stars here on MacUpdate.

A possible replacement for eMaps RIP might be the recently released OffMap found in the Apple Store, cost approx. $2

You might want to try emaps 2.7.8.

Very nice. Thanks for the tip, Miocinq. I had 2.7.5 archived and that seems to work fine. Not sure why dev doesn't make 2.7.8 available until the other issues are sorted.

Sorry, got excited when I read your post and didn't read the first post regarding limitations. Oh well, it'll do for now : (

As Fariborz said, eMaps 3.4.3 no longer connects with Google Maps. Is there a fix in the works?

Hello. The developer told me that he would one day rewrite the code but didn't say when. I suggest you use http://www.instantstreetview.com until then. It's the nearest thing to eMaps. Unfortunately for the time being there's little we can do except keeping hope against hope! Fariborz

I trust everyone will be generous in making a further donation if eMaps is successfully revived. Sincere thanks to the developer for his efforts.

I'll be the first to contribute. Promise! Thanks for your suggestion.

For the last three four days eMaps refuses to connect to Google Maps. I've tried it on several Macs with different IPs but the result has always been the same. Any idea what's going on out there? Could Emanuel please give us an explanation? Thanks.

I emailed Emanuele about this and received a quick reply:

"I'm very sad to tell you that eMaps does not work anymore.

Today Google has turned down Maps API services used by eMaps to display maps.

At this point I have to rewrite a large part of my app from scratch.

I'll try to do it in my free time, but this work could take some time.

Thank you all for your support."

That's the long and short of it. Hopefully there will be a resolution.

This is indeed sad news. I use eMaps so intensively for my job that doing without it is simply more than flesh and blood can stand! Let’s hope for the best that Emanuele would do something about this inconvenience and bring a profound smile to our faces. In the meantime, those who like me can’t live without eMaps can go to http://www.instantstreetview.com and take a look at it. It’s indeed a survival kit but for the time being is better than nothing! Thank you Zampon for your information.

Hope its back up soon... so lost without! Does anyone know where the places labels are saved and if I can export them to google maps [or even view the details without emaps loading]??

I wrote to Emanuele - the developer of eMaps who kindly explained to me the reasons why eMaps had suddenly ceased to function. They are basically what Zampom commented here except that the developer hopes he would one day rewrite the codes for a new version in his free time. Until then we have to stick to other possible solutions. Please read my previous comment for a solution that hasn’t all the bells and whistles of eMaps but does its job properly and partially fills the gap. As for exporting the places where labels are saved I invite aliw4009 to contact directly the developer. He’s a very kind soul and will surely work you through it. You can find his email at the bottom of "eMaps Quick Help”. All the best to all eMaps users.

thx Fariborz, tried the instant street though not ideal. I use emaps like you...to pinpoint customers and google maps just has too much clutter. If you find an alternative in the absence of emaps [which we might have to accept won't return] do post/pass on link

@aliw4009: places are saved in ~/Library/Preferences/eMapa.plist

In the next few days I will release an "update" that will allow you to open the menu places and export all saved places to a KML file.
At this time I can't do anything else...

Thanks to all,

Emanuele

I use it hundred times a day to pinpoint our customers. It's fast, intuitive and allows the street views on a large scale. This the application Google Street is made for! Can't recommend it enough. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

WOW !
Superb app.
Fast and lightweight. Intuitive.
Very useful.
I am using this for practical travel and location purposes,

Donate and make the world a more interesting place.
Thanks to the developer.
