How-to Get VRS-Like Coverage Map on RPi


how do you uninstall it … My Map is no longer working, it wont even display anymore.
And over at the website they have not even responded to your question. I feel
they dont care.


To Uninstall

  1. Delete folder mm2:
    sudo rm -rf ~/mm2

  2. Delete entry in the file /etc/rc.local:
    sudo nano /etc/rc.local
    #Scroll down, and delete following line
    /home/pi/mm2/mm2.sh &



It just isn’t working anymore for some reason. I did a refresh but then got the Google warning again. Then it quit working. I think google is messing with it.


works for me BUT with an API key that I got for free long ago.
I think it is still free. so then all yoy have to do is, add
the key to parameters.


I also have a free Google key which I obtained in 2016, but it does NOT work, neither with VRS, nor with ModeSMixer2.

In 2016, Google did NOT ask for Cresit Card details for a free key.


You can get the google maps API key from here


I think mine still works but I haven’t logged in for a while.


never used it with VRS only ModesMixer2, no problems.
next is now (system windoze 7x64 browser opera).

and ModesDeco2 - without key (never had)



Thank you abcd576 - I used this post again after a pi rebuild. Its one of the most useful how too’s on the site - Note to all and a reminder to myself, you do need to add --google-key qw234reyd_your_key_stuff_213423AS as an option to modesmixer2 line in the mm2.sh script if you want to get ride of the google water marks from the map. The google keys are free but you have to go and get your own key from the google web site. Thanks again.


I think that Google API keys require billing now:

To use the Maps JavaScript API, you must get an API key and you must enable billing. You can enable billing when you get your API key (see the Quick guide) or as a separate process (see Usage and Billing).

I prefer Bing Maps keys: https://www.bingmapsportal.com/
