Version 2.18 is the latest version. Now also support Joomla 3.0.
In Joomla 2.5/3.0 (1.6 and 1.7) the plugin can be upgraded automatically with the upgrade feature of Joomla at the extensions.
This is the last version where Google Maps API version 2 is supported because this Google Maps version 2 is deprecated from 19 May 2013. So please migrated to Google MAPS API version 3 (set the version to 3.x in the configuration of the plugin).
Also added language support for all the parameters: English, French, Italian and Spanish.
Please send me language files so I can add them to the plugin. Goto my website to contact me.

The support and explanations are beyond expectations. Thank you very much.
Performance and usability are great. The fact that it integrated into tabber without any problem testifies to the quality of the plug-in.
The plug-in is very powerful but easy to use, in part, because of the excellent documentation (including code snippets). Support was excellent. I requested a change to the plug-in at about 10pm. I had an updated plug-in in my inbox at 7am.
But some days ago I started having problems after updating this plugin. The map wasn't showing up and I contacted Mike to see if he could help me.
Mike was really fast in his reply and pointed out where was the problem comming from. It turned out to be a problem related to another plugin developed by myself that was causing a conflit with googlemaps plugin.
It's really great to have a free extension like this available to everyone with this high level of quality.
Great experience. I will be donating to this plugin soon.
The plugin is perfect but the support that Mike provides is second to none.
