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.

Needs to say ONE map only

This plugin is all about making you upgrade.

Free Version is Very Basic
By , for WP 3.6

You can basically do the same stuff for free on Google maps without the free plugin.

All the cool stuff like adding a logo etc is on the Premium Version ONLY!

Free version is a ramp

No maps can be created in the free version. Do you really expect people to pay for it without testing?

Errors and no Support. Totally not recommended.

We bought the plugin. GOLD VERSION. But it does not seem to work. Generates error and conflicts and does not show map in admin and site.
Email to Support, another mail... waiting 5 days and nothing. (GOLD VERSION INCLUDE SUPPORT...)
How can I define them?

Absolutely the worst service I have seen. Totally not recommended.

Didnt work for me (until update WP to latest ver)

Updated version of previous post as the Review Title was too negative - that was the start - In the end I got it going.

WP Google Maps 5.14.
Installed plugin, it displayed settings, but wouldn't display the maps page (where I presume we would add a new map).
Deactivated - and activated - no go.
downloaded & installed, activated again.
Settings displays
Maps at page=wp-google-maps-menu - won't display.
Update WP from 3.4.2 to 3.5.2
Activate plugin
YAH!!! finally displays maps page
Solution was to update WordPress in this installation.
(the installation was a test site - which was not updated to latest WP ver.)
Hope this might help someone else having trouble.

Don't bother

Doesn't work. Only an ad for the paid version. Searching through support shows everyone seems to have the same issue. Complete waste of time.
