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
If this doesn't help or you have questions or new wishes please fill in the form on my website with an url that shows the problem and version of the plugin and Joomla.

I had a problem with the plugin and emailed this to the developer. New version of the plugin attached, I got a reply in a short time.
Shortly, the plugin is very useful, has an easy management, and gives the user lots of options.
Many thanks to Mike Reumer.
The documentation on the plugin website is understandable and does work.
The support by MIKE is also quick if you cant find answers on the documentation or demo pages of the plugin.
I use the google maps plugin to show a map with more than 1 kml. It does work very nice.
The support from mike is incredible, very fast to respond and very willing to help. im certain developers like this have lots of queries but his assistance is certainly fantastic.
Thanks, and good job Mike!
Even better, Mike is 150% dedicated. I had a problem with the directions not working in IE. I contacted him via mail with all the necessary information. Eighteen minutes later, I had a reply in my inbox with an attached new version that solved my problem. I am simply amazed.
I am donating to Mike today and would recommend the same to all who use his plugin, to keep the author going.
Mike got me an answer very fast.
All works perfect now!
Tip for new users, you can use an adress instead of coördinates. Just make sure you use all information ( street + number + city + state/province and country)
