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 put it in one "custom" module and it didn't show up at first. I sent an e-mail to the developer and Mike contacted me within 24 hours, checked my site and told me exactly what to do to fix the problem. The problem was already in the "checklist" but I had overlooked it. Thanks Mike.
Then, all you have to do is put your API key into the Plugin, and it should work, you'll have a map of Europe.
From there on, in 1.5, you can just remove all the parameters, and configure it from the back end without hacking code.
Very cool. Must have, I think...
The plug-in is easy to use, flexible and has a huge variety of options. For once I'm not waiting on some functionality to be implemented for the the add-on to be useful.
I had a couple of issues getting it running, and I was able to solve one quickly with the online FAQ, and when I couldn't fix the other issue, I wrote for support and heard back within the hour. My problem was quickly resolved and everything is working great.
Thanks for the great plug-in Mike! I had no hesitation about making a donation for this one.
Mike made the most professional Demo I have seen on Joomla.
Google Maps by Mike Reumer it's not good, it's PERFECT!
And he does this for free mostly! There are companies out there that CHARGE you every month and do not give as good a service!
Get it, Use it, tweak it, love it and DONATE to it!
My own piece of PHP code to extract points from a MySQL database passes KML directly to the plugin without the need for storing any KML files on my server. Suits the needs of the site I built.
I liked the plugin and author support so I donated. I encourage everyone who needs a Google Maps plugin for their Joomla site to get this plugin, and to donate.
1 short email later, had the answers I needed and the maps work great.
Great product, great support, great guy to deal with!!!
