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

This plugin is loaded with features, beyond my needs, so I selected "1x" for the "Google Api version". I left the "key" and "multi key" fields blank.
Set the coordinates to your own, edit the "on-page" code, enable the plugin, and off you go.
I wouldn't have found the issue, without Mike's intervention - every so often, we find help from a stranger thousands of miles away and it restores our faith in humanity.
Thank you very much,
For the Google API version use 3.x that is for the latest version of Google Maps API and this version does not require a key.
Google Maps API Version 1 does not exists.
I have simply abandoned Google maps.
Thanks for the compliment for my plugin. I am sorry that it is not working on your website and you find it too complicated.
Please ask support at my website so I can have a try to solve the problem and discuss how we can simplify the usage.
