Didnt work for me (until update WP to latest ver)
By , for WP 3.4.2

Updated version of previous post as the Review Title was too negative - that was the start - In the end I got it going.

WP Google Maps 5.14.
Installed plugin, it displayed settings, but wouldn't display the maps page (where I presume we would add a new map).
Deactivated - and activated - no go.
downloaded & installed, activated again.
Settings displays
Maps at page=wp-google-maps-menu - won't display.
Update WP from 3.4.2 to 3.5.2
Activate plugin
YAH!!! finally displays maps page
Solution was to update WordPress in this installation.
(the installation was a test site - which was not updated to latest WP ver.)
Hope this might help someone else having trouble.

Don't bother
By , for WP 3.4.2

Doesn't work. Only an ad for the paid version. Searching through support shows everyone seems to have the same issue. Complete waste of time.

Waste of time
By , for WP 3.4.2

This is just and ad for the premium version.
You can do nothing with it. You probably get more functionality from google maps web site itself.

Many Features Advertised are in Paid Version Only
By , for WP 3.4.2

Developer needs to be more clear in description about what is actually included. Very frustrating, as you can figure out after installing that dimmed features are not included, but description is not included and it's not dimmed out, so I wasted time trying to figure out what was wrong. If I want to pay for a Google Maps plugin, I'll go to CodeCanyon and buy one for $6 instead of $15.

Misleading description, waste of time= 1 star.

What a joke !!

I've just loosed my time to install this plugin.
You only can insert an adress. No title, no description.

It keeps showing London
By , for WP 3.4.2

I created a new marker and nothing, still shows London. I even deleted the default London location from settings and left mine - still not showing!
