      loc = gg.locate @event.venue_address
      @map = GMap.new("map_div_id")
      @map.control_init(:large_map => true, :map_type => true)
      @map.center_zoom_init([loc.latitude, loc.longitude],14)
      marker = GMarker.new([loc.latitude,loc.longitude],
               :title => @event.title,
               :info_window => (@event.venue_address ? loc.address :
    

    “#{loc.address} *specified address unknown”))

    The error is saying that @map is nil

    and in the controller i have the next code:

    @map.overlay_init(marker)

    rescue
    @map = nil

    Could it be doing this?

    You could use ruby-debug to break into your app and see what is
    happening. Have a look at the Rails Guide on Debugging.

    No i’m using google-geocode

    No i’m using googl-geocode and ym4r-gm

    What are you using to work with google maps?

    Did you tried go_maps?
