The easiest to use Google maps plugin! Create custom maps with high quality markers containing locations, categories, descriptions, images and links.
The free version is pretty useless for most use cases. This would be OK, except by time you realize the implications of some of the limitations, you have already put time into setting it up. Unfortunately, the free version won't let you get your data out, so your time has been wasted. If the free version had let me export my data, I would have rated this higher, but all apps should allow data export.
for me - as head of the development team at an agency - this is by far the best google-maps plugin for the following reasons:
- easy to use (for me as a devloper and for the customer)
- with the pro edition you get all the features the google api has to offer
- constant improvement and quick updates for the latest wp releases.
- hassle-free css styling
- available in many languages
- and the amazing support
This plugin does exactly what we needed it to do. In addition, customer support for this plugin is outstanding. Anytime we've needed assistance Nick was there to help. Highly recommend!
I got exactly what I hoped to get in this plugin plus excellent support too. I started out with the free version a few months back, but I'm currently using the Pro version on 2 sites. Good job, Nick!
We were looking for a GoogleMaps plugin for one of our client projects. The previous basic plugin worked ok, with the exception of lacking the option to import all the placemarks from a CSV file, which was crucial to have.
After coming across this plugin, the import issue was quickly resolved (the geocoding was done through http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/). The import alone is worth getting the Pro version.
There was still some small customization needed, which we got done by the plugin developer, who'd implemented some custom code changes for us to get the new requested feature to work.
Thanks so much, Nick!
Bought the Pro version a while ago and have used it on several sites.
Does just what it was intended to do and easy to use too. Great for multiple-location businesses.
Support is awesome, not only did my issue get resolved but Nick followed up the next day to be sure.
DO NOT USE THIS PLUGIN. It creates tables in the WP database that will wreak havoc with your instance if they are removed (even after the plugin had been properly uninstalled).
It's also a trojan horse for the "paid" version. Knowing what I know now, I'd invest the time to learn Google's map API and code a plugin myself before I would use this one.
The provided description of the plugin only applies to the PRO version of the plugin. The free version is almost useless compared to the other free google maps plugins. more than half of the options are a teaser for the PRO version.
In my opinion it should be excluded from the repository unless the author changes the description to match what the free version offers.
This plugin is all about making you upgrade.
You can basically do the same stuff for free on Google maps without the free plugin.
All the cool stuff like adding a logo etc is on the Premium Version ONLY!
