There isn't anything built in to Pro Maps to output an error when a user enters an address that's not recognized by google, so you'll have to custom code something like this. Since its custom coding I can point you in the correct direction, but you'll have to implement it yourself.

In your wagmp_map_<num>.php file in the google_javascript directory, you will want to find the code that looks like this:
directions = new GDirections(map, document.getElementById('wagmp_directions_1'));
GEvent.addListener(directions, "error", function() {
map.setCenter(wagmp_map_1_obj.points[0], 13);
map.addOverlay(wagmp_map_1_obj.markers[0]);
});
directions.load('from: ' + fromAddress.full + ' to: ' + address_0.full);
wagmp_map_1_obj.directions = directions;

It should be near the bottom. In the GEvent.addListener portion of the code, you would want to write your display error code:
GEvent.addListener(directions, "error", function() {
map.setCenter(wagmp_map_1_obj.points[0], 13);
map.addOverlay(wagmp_map_1_obj.markers[0]);
<add error display code here>
});
