I do not see my gpx file / marker file in the map ?

Reviews

Gut aber nicht perfekt

Das Plugin arbeitet gut, jedoch ist die Einrichtung und Nutzung am PC etwas dürftig.
Zuerst muss man einen Marker Platzieren und dann die Karte am gewünschten Ort zentrieren. Etwas umständlich.
Es funktioniert auch kein Scrollrad um in die Map zu zoomen. Dauerhaftes Doppelklicken oder die Verwendung der + und – Buttons steht an der Tagesordnung.

Eine etwas intuitivere Bedienung wäre erwünscht, dann wäre es perfekt.
Das Plugin Flexible Map hat dies besser umgesetzt. Zwar Google Maps, aber weitaus einfacher zu bedienen.

Works well

Easy to get a good looking map on your site. I did struggle to get topographic maps but that may be due to my lack of time. Overall, I was very pleased with the maps.

why?

I am impressed how you can create such a very unintuitive panel for creating a map. Creating anything on it is a higher art of riding.
