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.
Look at the demo site first for documentation. If you've problems please do the checklist on the site: http://tech.reumer.net/Google-Maps/Documentation-of-plugin-Googlemap/checklist-placing-plugin-in-article.html

I'm sorry if the new alpha version for Joomla 1.6 destroyed your template, but keep in mind that this is not yet a stable version.
There is already one bug identified and solved that could cause this problem.
Please contact me on my website and I'll help you to solve it.
I have learned there are two ways to add some quite amazing features, either by working directly on Google Maps and feeding the resulting link into this plugin, or by adding simple code to the tags which define where the plugin is positioned.
Thanks to Mike's notes I was able to learn a great deal about how Google Maps works and by copy pasting from his examples was able to try out various tags. The feature-rich result I have now achieved is amazing. A big thank you to this very clever developer.
This plugin is very powerful but very easy to use at the same time!
The example page is the best tutorial I've ever seen, direct and easy.
The developer made me an help in order to fit this plugin inside my WEBSPACE.
What to say...
FIVE STARS for everything!
