First make sure that you need to get the free google map license key form google. Also make sure that the Version is correct as specified by the system requirements..

First you must ensure that the android project is using the correct API version of SDK , You cannot use Stand alone APP  SDK  for google map .
Also you have to obtain API key from google for your installed SDK in your system to send request to google services and also make sure that the services are running as a thread .
