Unbelievably robust/feature rich mapping component! Multiple maps, multiple categories on the same map, enter an address, coordinates or simply drag the icon to the map and the other details are added for you!

I had a JS conflict with my template provider and Daniel not only did the problem solving quickly on the forum but also took the time to log into my site to assist with it's correction.

If you're looking for a full featured, flexible mapping application with outstanding support... you've found your component!

After several months i returned to Compojoom Hotspots. I have tried several other components but all of them could not do what this component can.
After a few minor poblems that Daniel solved in a few ours (on a sunday) i now can build what i had in mind. Great!

I was searching for a google map extension for my joomla website until I saw hotspots demo. It has all the features I want (and much more). Excellent Work!

The support is also great. 5 stars!

I recently installed a different extension from HotSpots and wish I had tried HotSpots first. The support alone is worth the money and the extension so far is wonderful. I had a problem (or thought I did) and posted the error on their forum and within minutes Daniel came back with a simple solution. I am very impressed.

I had a few issue´s with the component (turns out to be my template), and the support was FAST, within 1 hour i had an answer.

perhaps the best money i have used on a joomla plugin...

I have been impressed from day one with the level of customer service provided with this component. I've needed to customize hotspots for our needs a handful of times, and the developer is always more than happy to guide me in the process (and I am NOT good with code!!). If you need an interactive map on your site, I'd recommend this one.

I agree that this is a very good extention. It´s a bit frustrating that the support team doesn´t answer the tickets on a daily basis.

This is one of my favourite extensions because it works so well and is backed up by the best support I've come across.

My 3 star rating is based on the following: For a hotspot thing the component is good,some minor bugs, but there are things i dont like and thats the frequency of updates offered by the author. He doesnt release bugfix versions, or additional functionality...nothing. If he stays on this speed you get 1 update/release per year. This has been discussed on his forum and its clear that customers pay the price for the time he needs to learn things and reading books. Personally I think thats a big no no. His view is to release stable versions. But nothing is really that stable. Because of the variety of users and their situations more releases would be in his best interest. As for support, well ive seen worse but already seen topics of 6 days old not answered, and thats in the customer forum. And it does happen a lot he doesnt follow replies from customers so you end up with a non answered question. So is it a good buy ? Probably yes...the author is a nice guy but he should step up a little bit. However, be aware of 1 release per payment, and support when he's not reading and learning.
Owner's reply

Hi Yamada,

Yes, the last stable version was released in August, but this should actually speak about the stability of that release. You should also note that there have been several development releases released to all subscribers to test and discuss the progress of the component.

About the forum threads not answered - I would ask all of the JED users to visit our forum and to see for themselves if we answer support requests or not. Let me put a little bit of statistics, because stats never lie: There are total of 2527 topics of which 118 don't have a reply - and if someone want to examine closely - you can see that 99% of those 118 topics are in the "Wish list" category or code contributions from other users. + 99% of those are older than 3 years.

Kind regards,
