Error in readChar(con, 5L, useBytes = TRUE) : cannot open the connection

The 'mow.R' now contains:

library(RgoogleMaps);
png(filename="RgoogleMaps-package_%03d_med.png", width=480, height=480);
 
MyMap <- GetMap(markers='&40.702147,-74.015794,blues%7C40.711614,-74.012318,greeng%7C40.718217,-73.998284,redc', destfile="MyTile1.png");

This results in the following new error:

> source('mow.R')
[1] "Note that when center and zoom are not specified, no meta information on the map tile can be stored. This basically means that R cannot compute proper coordinates. You can still download the map tile and view it in R but overlays are not possible. Do you want to proceed ? (y/n)"
