I’ve found a quick and easy way around this, for anyone experiencing the same issue and in need of a quick solution.
Go into the backend page for adding/editing map locations. Use your browser’s inspect element tool to find two hidden input fields, one for latitude, one for longitude. They are in a div called “acf-hidden” and will be called “input-lat” and “input-lng”.
Manually input your lat/long in there (in the value attribute) and submit the form, this will update the maps location without the need for maps to load in the backend.
