A guide to maps
If you find that an error message triggers or the map does not appear then it may be that you have entered an address that Google does not recognise or you have entered it incorrectly.
We find that Google prefers if you enter the address without ‘punctuation’ and in an ‘English’ address format. For example, enter the street number before the street name which is often not the custom in some countries. Here are some examples:
GOOGLE LIKES – 25 Rover Street
GOOGLE DOES NOT LIKE – Rover Street 25
GOOGLE LIKES – 146 Plantation Avenue Richmond London
GOOGLE DOES NOT LIKE – 146 Plantation Ave., Richmond, London
