I'm using this tool on my sites. So far happy how it works ;)
The only thing: gold package should be included into pro package.
I have not yet found/needed a Google Maps feature, this plugin doesn't support. It does everything (or at least everything I've needed it to do) and does it well.
My only constructive criticism is the ability to create/embed a map, needs to be more efficient. Why create and save a map, when someone could simply use a shortcode to create any/all maps, on the fly, in any page/post?
in free version too..
We are a small Not-For-Profit organization looking to develop an online guide to Canoeing and Kayaking in IL.
Plugin Install could not have been easier.
Initial Map Setup went great
Importing of data from CSV took some time to massage the data into the format it wanted, but went smoothly after that.
To reduce the overhead on volunteer administrators, We want the map to be managed/maintained by its community of users--kind of like a WIKI. While visitors can add information to the map, only admins can make changes / corrections from the back end. Hopefully there is a more user-friendly way for the community to maintain/manage the information on the map in future releases.
It would also be much more usable for us if there were custom data fields available based on the category of pin.
Integration of the Map Pin Data into Word Press Post Categorization would enable our users to comment on other's posts...
Will update this review as we go through our Beta and initial release of our page...

when i did try this plugin out I did want to buy it because I thought it worked very well and was easy to use.
however, the only time I have to pop one into a site their site was down. Maybe I will need it in the future.
A good pluguin but a better support. Thank you very much!
Plugin is certainly easy to use, docs are good and easy to follow...
Would recommend the plugin, especially if you don't want to get your hands dirty with code.
Paid version initially had some HTML validation errors which broke the page layout. Support team was responded and stayed with it til fixed.
This plugin was the only one I could find that would list clickable map markers outside of the map itself, and thus is why I am using it (the Pro version, that is). The base functionality is nice, and it does a lot of things I'm not using, but I have run into three separate issues since installing the plugin on a single site. Thankfully, Nick has been responsive to my support tickets. The plugin just needs some polish.
After trying to wrap my head around the Google Maps API we decided it would be easier to use this plugin. It makes setting up custom maps with custom markers very easy.
Our requirements were slightly more difficult (separate maps in the Bootstrap tabs) which caused a problems, but after getting hold of their support the problem was resolved very quickly.
Google Maps is an awesome plugin and worth the cost. It is very flexible and has many cool feature.
It misses only one thing to my opinion: GPS trace charts.
