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.

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.
I contacted support and the response was very fast and concise.
You actually get Mr. Reumer who made the plug-in and he's very patient. I had having a google error that was being caused by another part of the site, but Mr. Reumer took his time and gave me a few pointers and I was able to solve it.
Excellent plugin, does exactly what it says on the box!
So much thanks Mike.
