I had issues after installing it, but after contacting the support the issue was solved very quickly.
Very easy to use and everything is self explanatory.
I guess few more hotspot detail options like url, phone, and such would be great, but nothing that would change my opinion about it.
The extension has a clean look and a very nice user interface: one can zoom, pick and filter locations, email the map, etc. Most impressive is the support--my questions were answered in a timely manner and no inquiry seemed too small (or in my case, stupid). Cudos to the developers on this one!
Before I downloaded it I had some reservations about this solution. It looked okay but I couldn't tell if it would do all the things I needed, especially allow map point edits from the front-end of the site.
I can now tell you that if you have any reservations about this solution, forget them. Not only is this the greatest map solution available as a Joomla extension, but the support is exceptional.
Don't waste your time trying to make a non-commercial solution work correctly with your site or wait forever to hear back from some of the other commercial solution providers. Download and install Hotspots then go spend time fixing something else.
We use a lot of different components and stuff for a lot of commercial websites... up to now this one was the best.
Daniel´s support - even on sundays - is outstanding.
Thank you for this piece of software!!!
Especially the social thinking to give your users a tool to set Hotspots is very, very, very cool.
The Support is outstanding, the price is fair and the quality is very good.
