How to load API Map Servers

Hi,
I am new to GM and what I am trying to do is view my companies 'C Maps' which are provided via a URL with an API Key.

I have tried all the options available via the 'Select Online Data Source to Download - Add New Source' (such as TMS, WCS, WFS etc.) but to date I have been unsuccessful. What I don't see is any of the options asking for the actual API key.

If it's any help, what I am trying to do is the same as adding 'XYZ Tiles - New Connection' in QGIS!!

Any help would be great.

Thanks, Tim

    Hello,

    In order to get Global Mapper to put the tile coordinate values into the URL, you must use %x, %y, and %z (for X, Y, and Z, respectively).  In your URL, you are using 
    ?X=[x]&Y=[y]&Z=[z]
    but you need to use 
    ?X=%x&Y=%y&Z=%z
    If for some reason you need the square brackets, then you would use
    ?X=[%x]&Y=[%y]&Z=[%z]
    Cheers,
    Bob
