I have used Daniels Hotspots previously (paid Version) and have always found all this companies products excellent, the support is excellent and their knowledge is excellent.

I think this is a great product as is all their other products, I highly recommend to anyone.

Hotspots core is the perfect plugin for our paragliding club, we use it to show take off and landing places.

The developer is very responsive even on the free core edition. Thank you.

what to say?
After years of using Daniels components and participating on his services I only can recommend this component. This is the choice for you if you have to show places and spots on your site. Whatever seems to be not working, help will be powerful and problems may vanish in a magic short time. Since the new pro version is compatible even with community builder and all of its fields, this is nearly perfect to my needs. The rest is only a few postings in the support forum away.

Thanks for this fine piece of software.

Hotspots is one of the most elegant solutions for displaying your branches I've used. it's really simple to setup categories and branches, so you can setup a map with your locations easily.

However, it's also very flexible offering you tons of options to customize your experience. Hotspots goes way beyond showing some arrows on a map.

Highly recommended. :)
