Exactly the same warning here:
"You are using a browser that is not supported by the Google Maps JavaScript API. Considering changing your browser. Learn more Dismiss"

Despite the warning, everything seems to be working fine after clicking “Dismiss”.

I'm running Windows 7 with the IE 11. The link in the error message leads to a page with some hints:

The same error message with the same symptoms occurred recently in Picasa as well.

On the Picasa forum the source of the error was attributed to a Windows 10 update and was solved by a user (Christine) with a registry entry change:

Christine Schulze-Dammert said:
I found a solution
HKey_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\Feature_Browser_Emulation
Add a DWORD named "picasa3.exe" and set to 2af8.
Then Picasa shows the location of a picture again.
I guess, this was changed during the last upgrade of Windows 10

That solved the problem for Picasa

See the post in the forum at:

Perhaps this will be of help in tracking down the error in Geosetter (??)

For the regular release 3.4.16 I attached the needed registry file here, which can be imported by double click.

The new beta version 3.4.82 always adds the registry entry on startup.

Please note: The current beta version mentioned above is wrong, it still seems to be the old version. Will be fixed today... See also 0001836
