It's bugged and the support is disappointing. Stay Away!
By ,

It's very bugged.

Unfortunately I paid for the Pro version (plus Gold Add-on) but both products are bugged like hell. If you add Categories to map markers and then try to filter the markers using these categories, everything brakes (filters aren't working, all markers are shown even if you zoom out , etc, etc). Cluster markers on the Gold add-on are just a php file and there is no setup that can be done on the backend (you can't setup the level of zoom when the markers are clustered, the cluster icon, etc).

I've sent an email and posted on their forums and I didn't get a reply on my request nor my post on the forum was approved until I placed a hold on the payments on PP. That happened with 3 days delay (not the QUICK support that they advertise on their plugin page).

I asked for the money back (since the product is bugged and their support is pathetic) but, guess what, again, no reply for 2 days and no money back. I'll have to escalate the hold with paypal and hope I wouldn't have wasted money on these crap plugins.

Stay away if you read this. Don't waste your time and money with the pro version. There are a lot of other better mapping plugins out there!

I'd be happier if i hadan't found this plugin

this plugin is a huge lie. You start testing, prepare your map and then realise that's all you can do. You can have a map with as many markers as you want in ONE SINGLE MAP. In the end it was better for me to just insert the mapS directly from google maps. This plugin made me lose more time than the one that it could have saved me.

You can make only ONE map - then you must upgrade - then buggy
By , for WP 4.2.2

The creator of this plugin didn't make it clear that this is just a demo of another plugin, and that you are allowed to created only ONE map with this plugin. If you would like to create more, you have to upgrade.

I liked the features, so I upgraded, but am having a really tough time creating markers. It is not as easy as the other reviewers make it out to be, and their forum for this plugin has a slew of users who are having all kinds of trouble with it, too. I do have to say that the tech support is pretty good, but I still cannot use this plugin. Am hoping it is not a wasted 19.99. I finally found a shortcode maps plugin that I'm using now for my travel articles that fits the bill perfectly. I remain hopeful that this plugin works eventually, but the fact that since I've had it I cannot get it to work, I must give a one star review for this plugin.

Only One map
By ,

NO WORKING!
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have 4.2.2 Network and there is no addnew button for add new map!!! Only appears the link to by pro version!!!! :(

Need to pay for any useful features.

This plugin is useless if you want to do anything more than show a world map, unless you upgrade to the Pro version for $19.99. Don't waste your time with this plugin. In fact I made a WordPress support account solely to leave this bad review.

No indican desde el principio que las funciones básicas son de pago

No puedes crear un simple marcador con descripción sin pagar una versión Premium de 20 dolares.

WORTHLESS BECAUSE U CAN'T ADD INFO
By , for WP 4.2.2

THIS MAY IS WORTHLESS TO ME BECASUE YOU CAN NOT ADD ANY INFO FOR THE MARKER,,, JUST A ADDRESS...... SO IF YOU CLICK ON THE MARKER, IT ONLY SHOWS THE ADDRESS,,,,,(((BUT THE ADDRESS TO WHAT))) NO WAY TO ADD WHAT THE ADDRESS IS TOO OR FOR...

Tech Support is Inexistent
By ,

I bought the “Gold” version of this plugin and it worked great... until it didn't.

Contacting tech support was a waste of time. They simply give you the runaround and don't solve a thing.

Finally I figured it out on my own. Version 6.1.7 is buggy. I reverted to version 6.1.5 and 5.55 pro and all my troubles went away.

Of course, now I'm stuck with an outdated version, which could be a possible security risk. But hey, at least it works.

So there it is: great plugin/poor service.

Too limited
By , for WP 4.2.2

Very poor. It's look like an ad for the pro version.
