If the Light version is not enough, then you can choose to try the PRO version. use the link below to see what the GoogleMap PRO version offers.
This is an awesome extension with a lot of flexibility. The developer(s) are evolving the extension further and further. I like it very much and I do hope that the developer(s) behind this will do other extensions for joomla... he has great skills.
The component works with standalone language files, so you can translate them to your own language in no-time.
I have send Jan Sangill the dutch translation, so hopefully he will include this in the next version or update of this great component!
Jans instructions are easy to follow.
I made a minor enhancement in the code on my install so I have an info box open on a map marker when the page loaded. I contact Jan about making this a configuration option in the next release. I got a prompt and positive response to my suggestion.
Having looked in the code its quite cleanly written.
Only recommendation to people using this to define a fixed pixel size for you map as I had a problem in ie 7 with % size. This is a browser issue and not so one of the component.
What is great is that you can define several marker points and that it does not require you to learn any complex syntax.
I just would like to see some more configuration possibilities. There is no clear way to change the wording for getting directions and I did not see a way to work with Google KLM files. Yet with these shortcomings I come back to this one after having tried some others.
Also note: This is 1.5 native, many other map plugins seem not to be 1.5 native.
Around the 1st of June there will be a big update on the component.
This new version will have more configuration possibilities and 2 more views, plus more.
I would love to see the coordinates map tool added to the Category and Config settings...since I keep going into the destinations to use that tool to find the coordinates and then I copy and paste.
