Really cool for my travel blog
By , for WP 4.6

This was exactly what I was looking for. Generating maps (even the nice ones from OpenStreetMap) setting markers for your pictures and displaying them nicelsy on our blog. Waiting really excited for some features that appear to have been there before to come back for osm_v3 (EXIF, multiple markers).

Great for hikers
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin has been powering my geo-tagged posts and a few routes for years already. It's been working great. It's maybe not the easiest plugin in terms of friendly interface, but it really does all that's needed including ( the best feature perhaps ) reading GPX and KML track files. Highly recommended.

Great plugin and support
By , for WP 4.1.12

Great mapping plugin, easy setup in a short time, good documentation and many features. Fast & helpful support (forum on the plugin website). Cool feature: different mapstyles. Plugin is developed constantly. Happy i can get rid of google this way ;-)

Just want to embed a map
By , for WP 4.5.2

Not very intuitive. I just want to embed a map - after generating the shortcode three times and not finding how to create the marker asked for I give up. Definitely not what I need. Sorry, might be a good plugin but too complicated to use.

I really wanted to use OSM
By , for WP 4.5.2

But its wasted too much of my time.

1) NO instructions !
yes i saw another persons comment, read the reply, followed the links... to some confusing blog site... where the solution was NOT present.

2) BUGS?
So i added the shortcode. A mark and a marker. But i get Error: No marker - goto Add Marker tab... I do, and add a marker BUT there's no shortcode ?!?!?!? So i go back to Map&Marker and refind my location and copy the shortcode... and its still not as i want it... And now my marker info has disappeared from the OSM panel EVEN though i saved it...

No wonder Google Maps is the first choice ! I'd have finished with a marked map 45 minutes ago.

UPDATE ---
On that blog site i found some instructions, under "Demo" section.
BUT it doesnt seem possible to 'edit' anything????? Any changes can only be achieved by re-doing everything. That must be a mistake!

Oh and mouse wheel doesnt zoom on WP page??????????

No instructions. Could not use plug-in.

I could not find any instructions of how to use the plugin. What do you mean shortcode? How are shortcode created? No help in the FAQ or the Blog. No help after installation when clicking on Settings/OSM.

Great mapping plugin
By , for WP 4.5.1

Wonderful mapping plugin. Especially the newer osm_map_v3. Unfortunately the automatic creation of markers out of EXIF-GPS data from images does not work currently with osm_map_v3. With osm_map no problem. Or am i missing something?

Very good plugin for great map displays
By , for WP 4.5

I love this plugin! I use it mainly to showcase various GPS data on my private outdoor activities blog. Very good use of OSM data, almost anything is possible with this plugin, and it is regularly getting updated :) It takes some time to get used to its many features though the developer is also simplifying the interface every now and then.

Of all the WordPress plugins I have used since 2008 on various websites definitely one of my most favourite!

perfect for travellers
By , for WP 4.4.2

Perfect integration of gpx files or just for showing your position,
easy integration of custom markers.
The best plugin for using OSM maps - I've tested a lot before!
Thanks!
