CP Google Maps allows to associate geolocation information to your posts and to integrate your blog with Google Maps in an easy and natural way.
After a detailed comparison of the Google Maps plugin choices on the market for WordPress, I chose CP Google Maps because it allowed markers to be assigned to categories and tags and could be controlled in the legend on the front-end.
Maps Marker Pro came a close second because of its use of leaflet.js and other cutting edge technologies. Hopefully CP Google Maps can keep up with them in future.
Most of all i would like to stress that the technical support provided with this plugin is exceptional and i thoroughly recommend this plugin.
This plugin dosn't work as it promises to do
The plugin is really simple to implement. For multilanguage sites there is no support. It should allow multiple map definition so that one can use one map for each language.
The UI needs a lot of improvements.
it is good plugin for free use.

I think this is the plugin which takes 5 out of 5. Plugin really works fine with my site.
Wanted to setup a map with several customised markers at several custom locations. This is all to build a map showing good fishing spots off the coast of QLD, Australia. At first, this proved to be a real problem given that when I clicked on "verify address" it kept moving my marker back to the closest residential location and away from the ocean. Manually moving the markers into position proved to be frustrating and lots of time. When I did not click "verify" - no location was shown at all
The plugin author is very good at supporting this plugin. In fact I haven't come across many plugin authors who are this responsive at all. In the latest update I downloads I can now place the markers in custom areas according to GPS coordinates and I don't have to click the "verify" button and go through the manual process before!
This is great news. Yes the pro version does come with a lot more features but the free version is more than enough for me. The closest rival to this plugin, WP Google Maps charges you extra (PRO) the moment you want to use custom marker icons and actually put a popup bubble with text and image info - the free version of this plugin doesn't charge you for this and I am most pleased with it.
great plugin, with many possibilities, and great support too
So far so good, just what I was looking for! (Commercial version)
Spent nearly an hour (still havent figured it out) to figure out were to put the location address. This is a pretty bad plugin. Stay away.
