    I found a solution to the Google Maps authentication thanks to the SOAPUI Cookbook (kudos to you Rupert).  The issue I was having was that I was using the template Google Maps REST call that I got as a packaged download.  It was a great introduction to Google; however, as a package, it did not allow for additional fields to be added. 


    To solve the problem, I created a new REST call using the APIs that were part of the download package.  With the newly created REST call, it was easy to add the necessary additional fields including one for "key".   Hope this helps someone else who downloads the Google Maps API package and hits a wall with authentication.
