    I have checked your form and I have seen that you did not enter Google Maps API Key into your Autocomplete Address widget as the following screenshot:

    You can get an API Key from Google Maps.

    Also, I have tested the widget and I have seen that if you want to change the address that you had already entered, you should refresh the page to autocomplete.

    Please try. If you need more clarification, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you for reporting this, it seems that there are some scripting errors when our widget tries to access the Google Maps APIs:

    I have escalated this to our developers as a bug report, and we will notify you through this thread when the issue is resolved. Thank you!

    The widget has been fixed - it should work as expected with your API key.

    Give it a try and let us know.
