The on page image only shows an area location, not until you click for the larger image do you get the exact location. Not sure how much is down to Google!

Good plugin if you don't need support

The developers seem incapable or unwilling to give complete and comprehensible answers to questions. Instead of giving the answer to one (apparent) FAQ, they say "this has been discussed before, search the forum," when in fact the forum contains no answer. When they did answer a question, it required further research to make sense of their answer. i honestly can't imagine why they waste so much time with half-answers instead simple providing a workaround/answer up front.

Nice But So Many Updates
By , for WP 4.1

For such a simple plugin there are a disturbing number of updates. Don't get me wrong I'd much rather they keep it up to date then have an out of date plugin. However, there is at least one a week some of them untested as they require an immediate update to fix silly mistakes. Also when you review the version history you find some rather vulgar entries.

Great widget ... but
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've had no problems with getting the widget to work - which is great - BUT:
It doesn't appear to be responsive. There are issues with the map being on the bottom and right sidebar widgets - when the page is resized the widget overlaps the confines of the page (or other widgets).

Other than that, great work!
