GoogleMaps iOS SDK GMSMapView Class Deallocated

I am working on integrating the GoogleMaps iOS SDK into my project and I keep getting this error:

'NSInternalInconsistencyException' 'An instance 0x7fea5e93e210 of
class GMSMapView was deallocated while key value observers were still
registered with it. Current observation info:

Here's my view controller code:

import UIKit
import GoogleMaps

class ViewController: UIViewController, CLLocationManagerDelegate, GMSMapViewDelegate {

var locationManager = CLLocationManager()

var didFindMyLocation = false

let mapView = GMSMapView()

override func viewDidLoad() {

let mapView = GMSMapView()

locationManager.delegate = self

let camera: GMSCameraPosition = GMSCameraPosition.cameraWithLatitude(37.61729,longitude: -122.38229, zoom: 18)

mapView.camera = camera

mapView.delegate = self

mapView.addObserver(self, forKeyPath: "myLocation", options: NSKeyValueObservingOptions.New, context: nil)

override func observeValueForKeyPath(keyPath: String?, ofObject object: AnyObject?, change: [String : AnyObject]?, context: UnsafeMutablePointer<Void>) {
if !didFindMyLocation {
let myLocation: CLLocation = change![NSKeyValueChangeNewKey] as! CLLocation
mapView.camera = GMSCameraPosition.cameraWithTarget(myLocation.coordinate, zoom: 18.0)
mapView.settings.myLocationButton = true

didFindMyLocation = true



Just as it says: "key value observers were still registered with it", which is essentially complaining that you didn't un-register the KVO observer.

KVO, in this sense, is kinda like NSNotification - if you registered an observer in, say, viewDidLoad:, you need to remove the observer in, say, viewDidDisappear: or dealloc.

In your case, try to add dealloc function and use removeObserver:forKeyPath:context: to unsubscribe from KVO. Read more at mattt's article for KVO here.
