Geo-location not working - grabbed image won't insert into model

Macbook Pro 10.6.8 snow leopard, using Sketchup 8 (free version).

I go through the process to add a geo-location, but when I click ‘Grab’ nothing happens, the window hangs with no other buttons to press. It also doesn’t zoom in on a location when I search. I have reinstalled it, cleared Safari cache/cookies, but I can’t find any other solutions online. Help!

Google does not support the Safari version on Snow Leopard in Maps API. Google Maps Platform FAQ  |  Google Developers

Apple is no longer supporting Snow Leopard - Apple retires Snow Leopard from support, leaves 1 in 5 Macs vulnerable to attacks | Computerworld

Trimble no longer supports SketchUp 8.

ps - ask someone on forums to grab a geo-location in the template you prefer, and share to 3dwarehouse, to get you by. But please upgrade if possible, and life will be better.


Must be some solution.

The solution is to ask someone to grab terrain that’s updated their software in the past 6 years. T______T is good, but I’m not sure he can simultaneously fix Apple, Google and SketchUp while a simple action by the user would also fix the problem.
