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.

It is THE best!!! Thank you Mike...
i need something like this since about three months, and no one is so effectively, so challenging or so easy to handle!
So, everybody, if you need a maps plugin: JUST TRY THIS ONE!
May someone can tell me if or when this plugin will be J!2.5 compossible?
TY so far and ty for this extension!!!
Yes the plugin is compatible with Joomla 2.5. This will be updated in JED very soon
There was one issue with my Joomla setup and Mike quickly was able to send the patch to have it work. That simple, hard to believe it was possible. I had read the reviews and I have to concur with the rest of his users/fans. He has written clean, workable code that is respectful of the Joomla framework. I tip my hat to Mike and his plugin.
Thanks for developing this piece of code.
The support of Mike is also excellent! I had a little question an Mike answered within 2 hours providing the solution.
Thank you very much for this great plugin!
I have achieved what I needed for the moment and there are more settings and different methods to use for more advanced usage.
So if you have problems with google maps try this plugin, really.
I contacted Mike regarding a map layout I was trying to achieve, and apparently what I wanted wasn't possible. Within a day he wrote a new version of it, emailed it to me, and provided me with the exact method to call. Absolutely outstanding, especially for a /free/ plugin!
Keep up the great work Mike!
Mike thanks a million !
