Lightroom: Map module keeps flashing "map offline" when it's not

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Map is Offline.

"Map is Offline" makes the Map module unusable.  I just got back from Europe and I'd like to map my 1000 photos while I still remember them.  Please fix this - it is extremely aggravating.

Had the same problem, but luckily I could geotag the photos in the free software for my camera. It seems Nikon knew the GPS in the otherwise great D5300 was really bad and bundled the Capture NX software with it so you could somehow geotag your RAW files ;-)
If your files are jpeg I think there are many ways to geotag them, Google, your phone, ...
For Adobe it just seems they want you to all the time by new versions of their SW until you get so tired of it you just by and expensive subcription instead. Not very nice.

Can you guys confirm which LR version you're using please? And which OS?

Now updated to 7.1 CC release on Mac OS X (High Sierra) and it seems to work.

Sune, Google changed something on their servers a few months, which had to be fixed in shipping Lightroom versions. Since Lightroom 5 is quite old now, I'm afraid it won't get fixed in that version.

Please copy/paste the first ten lines from the menu command Help > System Info. Unfortunately, the CC desktop app often fools people into thinking they're running "the latest".
