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

So endly i found this googlemaps plugin, but i had not enough knowledge to install this properly.
I sended Mike Reumer an email for support.
He reacted directly helped me, by helping me installing the map module.
For those who want to place a GoogleMap on module position (that was my problem) the solution is placing it in an article and using the CustomContent Module (here following: Editing /Custom Code in Modules).
Also you can visit Mike Reumer's site and follow Documentation / Maps in components, modules & contact Joomla 1.5.x
Me and my client both are happy with this module.
I specially like the very fast response from Mr Mike.
That is awesome.
I will recommended it for others.
Thanks And Regards
The only trick I found was the map key google supplied for www.mysite.com did not work - instead I had to use the key for mysite.com (without the www.)
Other than that it took about 2 minutes from download to finished! That's rare with most extensions.
Thanks again Mike.
Highly recommended plugin for Google Maps with tons of variables to suit your needs. Best part is, its a plugin.
Thanks for the great plugin. This is working very good in the articles. Can we use this plugin in the custom component? If yes can you say the process please?
Actually I have placed the code in my custom component (out of php code)as
Then I didn`t get any map there. Just it is displaying the code only PLease say is it possiable? or not?
