It won't work- as of july 3, 2016
By , for WP 4.5.3

Got the API, kept giving me access denied (with no specific reason); it worked when I right click on map but that's very user un-friendly... 2/5

the free version is a joke

the free version is a joke

the light version is just too lightweight
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have no problem with the idea of a light and a pro version.
But this light version is just way too light, meaning I cannot even really check if I like the plugin and consider buying the pro-version.
I'd rather just paste the normal google iframe.
Tried it, didn't like that anything that is slightly interesting needs the pro version, deactivated, deleted, bye bye.

sorry but i never managed to add a second marker(keeps loading) and all the good features are in Pro version

too limited
By , for WP 4.0.1

You can only add one map with limited functions. Just too limited for even a free version.

directions only available with Pro version
By , for WP 4.0

It seems good enough not that my favorite is no longer supported. But, Directions are only available with Pro version, $19.99. It guess it is a one time fee but client is trying to run lean and with googlemaps I can already add maps with an embed.

Free version = very limited
By ,

You get ONE map with the free version, which is not totally clear on the plugin description ("Lite version" bullets erroneously use pluralization, i.e. "Responsive maps".)

From my interaction with this plugin, the free version has unusually limited functionality.

This may be a good plugin, but I am not inclined to get into a relationship with someone this withholding during the dating period.

"Create custom maps" -- no, ONE map
By , for WP 3.9.1

For those wanting a single map, the lite version of this plugin may indeed offer the robust feature set needed. The description, however, should be corrected: the free (lite) version should read "create a custom map" rather than misleading with the plural.

doesn't work with wp-minify-fix
By , for WP 3.9.1

we use wp-minify-fix to help our google page speed and server optimization and this plugin broke as soon as we turned wp-minify on. we now just embed our own google maps with iframes straight from maps.google.com instead of trying to use a plugin which is more cumbersome.

Since upgrade to 6.09...
By , for WP 3.8.1

Nothing actually works and I only see promotion and promotion for the Pro version. Down from 5 to 2 stars!
