Ok polling the community.
I've had a few people request just a google map image rather than the interactive map. I personally tend to agree and think it is a nice idea. The map itself also have translation issues and really isn't super useful in that tiny space (although you can change the size in the panel). The image would link to google anyways, so people are a click away from playing with the map.
1) switch to image and remove embeded google map.
2) make it an option on the setting panel where you can pick which you would prefer
Thoughts? I personally lean towards the first in the name of minimizing feature bloat - but if you all love the embedded map, we can work with it.
