Can I avoid the "page contains insecure content" popups for PRTG's Geo Map feature?



When I use Google Maps in PRTG 8 an my HTTPS website users get a pop-up message saying the page included both secure and non-secure content. No one likes pop-up messages and the extra clicks they require.

Can I avoid this?

Google offers its "Google Maps API" for usage via SSL/HTTPS only to paying customers:

Quote from their blog: "We've introduced a new feature for Google Maps API Premier, allowing our enterprise customers to access Google Maps API Premier securely over https. This means all communications between the customer's website and the Google Maps servers are sent securely, and offers a better experience to people looking at the maps on secure web pages.


This new feature is only available with Google Maps API Premier. "


Currently, we do not support Google's Premier API. Using Firefox, you can configure your browser to not show a warning message any more when displaying images loaded via http in a generally SSL-secured connection.

Thank you for your information John. You are right Google Maps API V3 supports https calls.

We will take this into account with one of our next releases.
