Thanks for the reply.
On the same subject, I'd like to point out my disappointment. I purchased the Pro Pack after seeing the map in action on another website (using the plugin before the fork was made). It was exactly what we needed: A pulldown for the country, then, based on that first information, a pulldown for the city, only showing the cities of that country. I get the logic behind the radius-based model but I think it only applies to cities/states where indeed, crossing from one to the other is no big deal. It is quite different for countries (except in Europe maybe). I have 5 shops in a small country and because of the radius and default store results (25), I get 20 other results in the adjacent country, which is separated by sea(!). Although close, I really don't think people would go to another country, ESPECIALLY when they have already results coming up in their country.
I know everyone has different expectations and shop structure but I hoped the Pro Pack would answer this basic need (based on previous versions seen).
That post is now long but maybe I can offer a suggestion.
1. Have the filters based on the previous one (as explained above. Country -> City -> Tag (tag filter could be set before or after the geographic filters depending on the user needs - I know I'm being picky here but I just try to think of different situations)).
2. IF a country/state/city shows results already, then display them and IF other shops are close-by (based on default radius) (in a different country/state/city), it could be shown after a jump in the results with a heading like "Other shops in the area...", to clearly separate the results requested and the suggestions from the system.
Sorry for long comment.
Very happy to discuss it further if not clear enough.
