On July 12, 2018, John Elfelt, the developer of GMap4, made this announcement: “Thank you everyone who had a kind word to say about Gmap4 since I launched it in 2009. Gmap4 had a good run. However due to policy changes at Google, Gmap4 is shutting down for most users as of this evening, July 15, 2018.”
We are, of course, disappointed to read this great mapping tool is no longer available.
Once we found out, we started looking for alternatives and discovered onXmaps at http://www.onxmaps.com
Unlike GMap4, it is not a free product. You can purchase the use of one state map for $29.95 per year, or all 50 states for $99.95 per year. We chose the former, as we are searching only in New Mexico.
We have produced an introductory video on the product. You can find it on our YouTube channel here: onXmaps: Fenn Treasure Research Alternative to GMap4
Give us a thumbs up if you found it helpful.
