Google Maps App - Occasional Failure


We use a the GoogleMaps module (1.1.3) in our Splunk 6 advanced XML dashboard and it occasionally fails with the message below (it was also happening in Splunk 5). If we hit CTRL+F5 it will work and the message doesn't appear. Any ideas why this is happening?

Our search query: index=iis host=customhost | geoip c_ip resolve_hostnames=f
