Is there any Google Map intergated module for Odoo 8? There is one for OpenERP 7. Will it work on Odoo 8?

I want to be able to look up my customer address on the map.

You may download the following module & make a few changes, it will work on Odoo 8. And you will get a map button on partner form.

1. Download https://apps.openerp.com/apps/modules/10.0/google_map/

2. Rename __manifest__.py to __openerp__.py

3. open google_map_launch.py, remove all library imports and paste the following:

from openerp.tools.translate import _
from openerp import models, fields, api, exceptions, tools

4. open google_map_view.xml, remove the following xpath:

<xpath expr="/form/sheet/notebook/page/field[@name='child_ids']/form/sheet/group/group/div/div[@name='div_address']/field[@name='street']" position="before">                    
    <button name="open_map" string="Map" type="object" class="oe_link or_right" />

5. Restart & upgrade the module. You will get like this:

Yes, you install standard v8 website_google_map module (it works on frontend).

Thank you for your help! I installed the website_google_map module. I didn't see any way to use this module on frontend. I don't plan to use the website at all, just frontend. How can I access to the map from frontend? Is it same as Google Maps module for OpenERP 7 where it adds Map button on the partner form.

There is a new tab labelled "Geo Localization" in partner form. I click on the "Geo Localize" button and it just fills out the geo coordinates but not taking me to the map...

if you have coorddinates, you can easily do a link to https://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll={latitude},{longitude} If you prefer you can use address easily: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Chaussée+de+Namur,+1367+Ramillies Else you can follow tuto here : https://www.odoo.com/documentation/8.0/howtos/web.html#the-form-view-custom-widgets to create a quick google map widget !
