Actually simple and perfect
By , for WP 4.5.3

Lightweight, easy to use, no 'pro' version bait and switch, and it looks clean. This is the perfect replacement for the Google Maps shortcode in Jetpack. With this one, you simply add your address to the shortcode and boom, you've got a map. You can include your business name first, or just start with the street number. Add a few more well-chosen variables to the shortcode to customize.

The only issue was finding a company CID code for the companycode field (see the plugin FAQ). Google may have updated their UI since these instructions were written. There was no 'cid=' in the Send To Your Phone > Email > emailed URL. However! When I added the company name to the address field in the shortcode, it seemed to pick this up anyway (?) and does link to the business. So this may be redundant now.

Bottom line: This one really IS simple and did exactly what I needed. It's worth a quick try.

Nice looking map.

I noticed the Max Mega Menu uses this. It gave a better looking map than the other map widget I tried.

It is quite simple
By , for WP 4.0.1

It does exactly what it says. If you want a simple google map with minimal customization , then this is a good bet. Very satisfied with this plugin.

Also, if you wanted to edit/customize this plugin it is super simple. This plugin only contains one file :)

finally, a google map plugin that gets it right
By , for WP 3.9.2

everything else out there is way overly complicated and comes with bugs and surprises due to their complexity. this plugin gets it right by making it as easy to build the shortcode and embed in a page or post as it is to search google maps.

Nice

Why isn't every map plugin this easy to use? Perfect!

Simple, Packed with Features - Love it
By , for WP 3.7.1

Simple, yet packed with ALL the features you need to get a map on any page via shortcode. Tried out like 3 other plugins before, but this is by far the best :)

Simple, does the job and great support!
By , for WP 3.7.1

There are lots of GMaps plug ins. Most are too complex or seem to fail because of Java Script compatibility hassles.

This does the jobs I need with a simple shortcode... No messing around just put the damned address in and you're sorted!

I had a minor issue and Michael swiftly resolved it... I couldn't ask for better than that!

Really Easy to Use
By , for WP 3.7.1

I gave this plugin a try even though it was new and only had one review. It was VERY easy to use and did everything I needed it to do. The map displays perfectly on my website.
