    I do not think that this plugin adds any benefit to your webpage that you cannot achieve just as easy by going to Google Maps. The only possible advantage would be the short-code to insert. The basic version works more as a way to promote the paid plugin. It is just too basic.

    Hi Kaj
    We hear you. We'll be releasing a new version either today or tomorrow that has the following new features for the basic version:

    - Marker animation (Bounce, drop, none)
    - Marker info window open/close by default
    - Bicycle layers (on/off)
    - Weather layers (on/off)
    - Traffic layers (on/off)

    Thoughts on the above?

    Kind regards
    Nick

    Hi Nick,

    The possibility of adding more than one map, and some custom markers are features that I think should be included in the basic version. Doesn't necessary have to be unlimited maps but but at least enough to make it useful (5 - 10) maps.

    Basic version could include some basic nice markers where pro version offers the whole package with multiple options.

    In my case the layers offered are not interesting features but could be so for other users. Usability is key for any plugin for most users.

    Kind regards
    Kaj
