Ok what has happened is Google changed the API as of June 22nd so the map module is unable to update the Map.
Adobe will not update Lightroom 5.71 to use the new API.
However it's not really needed
This plugin Jeffrey Friedl's Blog » Jeffrey’s “Geoencoding Support” Plugin for Lightroom and maybe Jeffrey Friedl's Blog » Jeffrey’s “GPS Proximity Search” Lightroom Plugin still work and gives you many external map viewers as well.
This is great if you have a gpx tracklog to work with.
But what if you used the functionality to drop a photo on the map to add gps coordinates.
https://www.snafu.org/GeoTag/ this works for osx select a photo drop a pin on the map (apple maps) and it adds the gps coordinates to the photo. It uses exif tool to write a new file (identical to the old file except for the gps) you can select the folder with your photos in lightroom and select show in finder start geotag select open and now drag a photo from the finder window to the open dialog box this changes the folder its looking at. hit open all the files are queued up and you can tag. Saving is a bit slow since it recreates the file and puts the old one in trash. Close GeoTag when finished. When back in lightroom right click on the photos and select read metadata from file and after a few seconds all the photo's you have added gps coordinates to.
Alternatively any mapping app that can give you a gps coordinate can be used, copy the coordinate to the clipboard, paste to the gps field in lightroom.
It may actually be faster to find a coordinate in geotag copy that to the clipboard and paste it in lightroom.
How can we improve?
