CSW Compass Pro Component

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
Compass is a feature rich dealer/store locator built atop the Google map API zip code proximity search, other extensions currently on the JED require large zip code databases to pull from, or monthly paid services to connect to. Compass is a stand alone extension. Install it and add all of your locations to it; the users can then do a zip code search and it will return all of the locations nearest to their location/zip.

Compass was developed following the Joomla MVC framework, so it is easy for users to customize via template overrides to fit their own site’s needs. Compass is also built to take advantage of the multi-language support and uses Joomla language files.

There are a lot of locator extensions out there, but most of them want to display all the locations on one map at the same time as well as other nuisance issues and broken advertised functionality.

My business requirements were restricted to display all business names, their addresses and URL within a 10 mile radius. Unfortunately most J2.5 extensions required Google Maps to be enabled and there was no way to shut it off. Additionally most developers of locator extensions wanted to throw in the kitchen sink of functionality and again there was no way to pick and choose what was displayed.

After a long exhaustive search CSW Compass Pro was the only one that offered the precise functionality I required without major headaches as well as prompt tech support to fix major bugs encountered in J1.7 and J2.5. The new version for J3.x just came out in time for my company to upgrade to J3.2.

The developer spent a lot of time on his extension and was willing to accept feature requests. SOme of which were added for his J3.x version.
