this is an awesome component coming with a lot of features to build a great map on your demands. Ok, still some bugs and missing features, but as far as I can see will be willing to develope this great extension.

I downloaded the latest version of HotSpots a couple of days ago. It's not perfect (yet), has quite a few bugs (at the moment) but has great potential for when it's all been sorted out and bugs squashed.

It's quite a unique component that I'm sure will be of use to anyone needing to place markers on a map. It will be ideal if, like myself, you need to plot a 'course' or mark a number of locations. I'm in a sailing club and we want to create 'rece courses' and also mark our moorings, HotSpots will be great for that.... when the bugs are squashed.

Daniel (the Admin) has been very helpful and quick with his replies, I'm happy with the small donation for support and look forward to seeing this component grow.

This component is what I'm looking for. I need to have a map where people can post a marker to. When Installed I thought this would be great. However the map doesn't show correctly with my site and everything wants to shift around. I have tried to get assistance with this but to no avail. I hope you can work on this component and get it stable for a live site. It has great potential.

At first moment seems very good and nice component, but this impression disappears when you try to add a location. Component moves it to completely different place. Practically unusable for the moment.

This extension is very promising and the guy behind that is very skilled. Unfortunately the extension is not yet mature for livesites since there are some real bugs with JS and furthermore it is still missing a module which should be standard for a component since most people dont want to use the maps as maincontent but as an addition to it. I do hope this standards will be released soon and i claim my wish for a Pro version which will be updated on a more regular basis.

It's a pretty good component, unfortuntly it does not let me map outside of roads, an example when my place mark is on a mountain, after posting, it automatically places the place mark to the nearest road. If this component did not do that, it might be just what I need. It's great for street maps and such. Also in the admin panel I like the option of having the post link to an article, which if you could do this in the front end, that too would be awesome! Great job on this component. Cheers Josh Lewis.
