Reasons:
To actually understand how to solve the issue we need to consider the reasons behind these issues. This will help to guess where the exact problem might lie and help in correcting it.
Hence the issue can be classified into three broad categories:
  1. The issue can be specific to the application you are loading. For example a recent update might have caused some unintended changes in the actual workings of the app.
  2. Access denial issues such as ‘Access is denied’ error messages indicate that your location cannot be accessed by Google Maps right now.
  3. And the last one is browser issues. Many times the browser is at fault which produces old cache data even when the applications have started working properly.
The first issue we will be looking at is ‘Google Maps not loading’ error message. This error occurs in a number of devices and sometimes even on the web browser. So in order to troubleshoot this issue we can follow a couple of steps.
  1. Google chrome browser :
->Open settings
-> Scroll down to ‘Show advanced settings’
-> Scroll to ‘Location’ and select the option “Ask when a site tries to track the physical location”
-> Be sure that “https://www.google.com/maps” has a permission to access your location.


  1. Firefox browser:
Type the url ‘maps.google.com
-> Click on lock icon and go to more information
-> On the Permissions tab and under ‘access your location’ click allow.


  1. Safari browser:
Click on Preferences at the top right corner
-> Click on ‘Privacy’ and ‘Prompt for every website for one time’
-> Select your country version in Google Maps
-> Click on the ‘GPS-like’ icon
-> Check on the prompted option ‘Remember my decision and don’t ask again’
-> Click on ‘Allow’.


To troubleshoot this issue in the case of Android phone you can follow the steps given below:


  1. Restarting your phone is a simple solution and in many cases this solves the issue because the application might have stopped due to less memory problems.
  2. Another way is to clear app cache and dat. You can do this by going to settings and then find google maps under the applications heading. There is a simple clear cache button provided there
  3. When the above methods fail one might try reinstalling the app itself. This also helps in getting the latest version of the app.
These compilations of methods are handy in order to resolve the error quickly by yourselves. Do share with us if you find more interesting solutions.
