Free version is useless. You can't do anything with it. I want my 5 minutes back it took me to figure it out.

Useless for free version

Too limited
By , for WP 3.8.1

I do not think that this plugin adds any benefit to your webpage that you cannot achieve just as easy by going to Google Maps. The only possible advantage would be the short-code to insert. The basic version works more as a way to promote the paid plugin. It is just too basic.

Demo Version Useless
By , for WP 3.8

Good plugin, easy to use and works. But the Lite or Free version is just a (very)basic demo. I understand that you guys need (and deserves) to make money, but the free version is way too limited. I teach WordPress at Brazil and wanted to feature your plugin in my class, but it´s not possible because i can´t even put title on the marks. Usually i don't make negative reviews, sorry for that, but i think you can do better at the free version. Thanks anyway.

Use a plugin that actually provides value

Really disappointed to have installed this plugin only to find out that it offers nearly zilch functionality unless you purchase the pro version. Junk.

Its all just a big fat lie

They do not give you anything if you do not pay. Probably the worst plugin I ever downloaded.

Beauty of WordPress is that there is not many liars like these guys.

Crap! No much options like zoom level in free version. Also the developer sell this kind of craps for money. You need to pay to get pro version. When there are already 100s of free plugins which are better, this guy lives 100 years back.

Free Version is way too basic
By , for WP 3.7.1

Only care about making you upgrade to the premium version.

You don't even get a chance to do anything with the free version to really see if this plugin is what you're after.

Free version only lets you create one map with one default marker. You can't do anything else at all in it.

All wrong from the developers. Should give us a taste of what this plugin can benefit to our sites. It fails to do that and subsequently will lose a lot of potential upgrades to their pro version.

Limited Functionality
By , for WP 3.7.1

All these map guys seem to want to make a killing with your PRO versions....limited functionality with the free version. I would not recommend.

Free version has nothing compared to other similar free plugins
By , for WP 3.6.1

The provided description of the plugin only applies to the PRO version of the plugin. The free version is almost useless compared to the other free google maps plugins. more than half of the options are a teaser for the PRO version.
In my opinion it should be excluded from the repository unless the author changes the description to match what the free version offers.
