I have tried many other plugins and this one, although very new, offers an unusual quality in this type of connectors. And it seems to carry no hidden limitations or incompatibilities. Very good interaction with programmers.

This is the best plugin that I have used for creating custom and styled maps of Google. The editor is very intuitive. Moreover, there is a feature for importing data from CSV for easy adding locations on the maps.
