I tried several before this one and consequently wasted so many hours it's not a joke. Wish I'd come here first. Downloaded, configured and voila! It worked first time.

Thank you Thank you for making something necessary in today's business sites and simplicity itself to use.

I use JomSocial Profile Pro and was able to use this plugin with the user field "address" and it populates the User's Map! Great plugin I paid $22 for another plugin and that was a waste of money - this one is free!

Does everything it says on the tin! Installed in Joomla 3 just fine. As a further feature I'd like to be able to enter co-ordinates for those remote places with no searchable feature.
Owner's reply

Since the version 1.1.1 it's possible to enter coordinates as well. Comma separated latitude and longitude must be expressed as decimal degrees, e.g. 60.1705,24.9384.
