I am setting up a real-estate website in Spain and I can verify that this plugin is COMPLETELY USELESS in terms of showing the right location. Most searches for addresses that work perfectly on maps.google.com show a location in Mexico or somewhere similarly random.
I have tried every possible way of specifying addresses save using coordinates, and am now giving up and replacing this with something that works.
A couple of glaring issues with the google maps plugin. First, The popup box and zoom bar are both rendering poorly. Second, the popup argument for the shortcode doesn't work. If you set popup="false", the popup will still show. Aside from these issues, this plugin does give you a responsive google map. The reason why I'm giving this plugin 1 star is due to lack of response from the author posted after publishing it. The fact he's active on another plugin, but not this one bugs me. Free plugin or not, if you release something on w.org, it should actually work as described.
