Map template not finding location

I'm having a problem with a new site and Google maps using the map.html template. The Find address button doesn't appear to find my location (using a UK postcode). I can zoom and pan the map to find an approximate location but there's no map pin.

I have created and entered a Google Maps API key and assigned the appropriate referrers on Google Dev site.

I have saved my region. Is there anything else I need to do to create a map with location pin?

and my template (I have RWD defined in config.php)

    <h2><perch:content id="location" type="text" label="Location name" required="true" title="true" suppress="true" /></h2>
    <perch:content id="map" type="map" label="Address" zoom="15" />

Do you get any errors from Google in the browser console?

No, nothing at all.

Does the map display on your page?

Are you able to click to add the map pin?

Gosh. Just done that, worked great. Never knew you could do that with Perch map template. Have always used Find button.

I shall go away with head down in shame ;-)
