FindFriendsMini 0.4.5 Needs Google API Key

Hi

Pending a few updates the upcoming version of FindFriendsMini (FFM) needs to have a googleAPI which is now used for both mapping but also distance calculation via the Google Maps Distance API. It will run and mostly work without however there will be fairly regularly error messages.

Google APIs
They free and easy to obtain.
We need both the Static Maps API and the Distance Matrix API
Once obtained copy and paste into FFM plugin Config

Mike describes here:
viewtopic.php?f=181&t=14734

Why?
This allows us to generate png maps images, but also distance calculation and now time to Geofence calculations.
Each FFM device will have a field which is timetoHome both in text "1 hour 22 mins" and 82 (as number) and indigo can be triggered on.

0.4.5 is on github, just running through some tests before on PluginStore.

So the one key will work for both?

Only one Google API key is needed

But you do need to enable it for Static Maps API, and Distance Matrix API

The same key can be enabled for multiple APIs
