Great plugin
By ,

The plugin adds some very useful functionality to some cycling events sites I created to allow for their ride routes to be shared online via the use of a kml file.

Very easy to use and great features included. Highly recommend using the pro version.

So far so good!
By , for WP 4.0.1

Just bought the developer pack with Gold, Pro, and VGM add-ons. A few bumps involving being too zoomed in on a remote corner of earth, but basically was up and running with nice pins in place.

I hear there might be additional fields in the VGM add-on to allow for email signups...at least that's my vote for an additional feature.

Great job, I look forward to seeing this get a lot of use on my client's site! I'm happy to come back and add the final star once we've lived with it a while.

Overall a good plugin if you want to use Google Maps in WordPress
By , for WP 4.1.1

*EDITED*
At first I had some problems with support but that was due to the dev being very busy trying to remove all aspects of TimThumb from the plugin, which is very much in the interests of users. Once I got in contact I fixed a few problems I was having which were mostly of my own making -make sure you don't have multiple map plugins running...

It could do with slightly clearer guides on use (when compared to something like Mapbox which has about the clearest guide I have seen for an online mapping tool) but if you want to use Google Maps inside a WordPress CMS, this currently looks like the best bet.

Good Job!

This excellent plugin can make easy insert personal maps whit personal interest points and take some new features like Store locator, that interested me in particular.
Support forum is fast and excellent.
Enjoy!

Great but the free version is very limited
By , for WP 4.1

This is by far the simplest most easy to use maps plugin I've tried. Unfortunately, the free version only allows you to create one map, which is why I'm giving it a 4 star rating rather than a 5 star rating. If you only need to put up one map on your site, this plugin is the way to go to avoid a headache. Love it.

limited but works

Useful and simple for use plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

I like this simple to use plugin.
I was not understand how it works. But I just install the plugin and get what was I need.
There is map dimension, select elements on the map, exactly address with coordinates and etc. In Pro version I can draw multiple lines or polylines or polygon area. It is enough for my first Map for contact page.
By the Categorie's Map I can create new icons for some markers on the Map. It is great idea for make individual styled markers on the map.

I will recommend this plugin for Contact page as well as for all-around pages of web-sites.

For improving I have small Idea to use track-styled font for create polyline on the maps. By this case the solid colored lines may be changed for wolk (foot-tracking), for car driving (tire tracks) and etc.

Simple et efficace
By , for WP 5.22

J' adore ce plugin, il est terriblement simple et efficace, il correspond à 85% à mes attentes dans sa version pro payante, la conversion dollars/euros me l'a fait payer 10€ et vu les services qu'il peut rendre je ne vais pas me plaindre.

+ :
Il est presque entièrement francisé ( ce qui n' est pas traduit est très facilement compréhensible ).
Les marqueurs sont facilement customisables ainsi que la taille des fenêtres descriptives, idem pour la taille des miniatures des images et la taille des cartes.
Le shortcode peut s' insérer partout : page, article, widget.
On peut insérer du HTML dans les descriptions.

- :
On ne peut pas mettre les marqueurs dans plusieurs catégories.
On ne peut pas attribuer une image de marqueur spécifique pour chaque catégorie.
On peut insérer le shortcode dans un widget "texte" mais il s' affichera dans la taille réglée, pour afficher une carte miniature il faut en creer ( et surement utiliser la fusion des tables pour afficher les marqueurs mais je n' ai pas compris. )

Dans l' ensemble le bilan est très positif.

Great plugin and support
By , for WP 3.5.1

I bought Nick's plugin to replace a client's custom Google Maps implementation with over 100 markers that was just not maintainable.

I did have some compatibility issues with other plugins but Nick was very responsive and quickly helped me get that all sorted out.

The client can now quickly and easily update any existing markers and even add their own new custom ones.
