When installing in Joomla ver thre was this error:

500 JHtmlBehavior::mootools not found.

One e-mail to the developer James Hansen and the problem was solved within ONE (!) hour.

For a simply Google Map plugin for Joomla I recommend this.

Simple to install and easy to configure.

Just make sure that you download the correct version from the develop's website for your Joomla installation - his website is confusing, you gotta read the etxt closely, and I ended up downloading the wrong one, before I realised what was happening.

I have since used this plugin on a number of sites.

Works well, almost there, but needs a little more work.

Two things led to some disappointment:

* Only 1 marker per map

* Cannot get directions to the location.

Otherwise, a decent extension. Good job.

Fairly good

Fairly good, but does not give the user the normal ability to click on the red symbol and get directions.

If it had that enabled, it would be perfect.

When the user drags the gold person onto the street, they are able to get into street view, which is great, but they are not able to get back out of street view without re-loading the page.

Alternatively, if the user were able to simply have a link to click on to "view in Google Maps" then that would open in the normal google maps and give them the ability to get directions and use street view without problems


I loved it

Simple to configure, easy to use. Well done.

Good extension

this extension rules and is much better to implement and run than for ex googlemaps plugin which is really hard to configure

well done man :)
I really enjoyed finding this module. I was looking for a way to display a map of where my club was. This tool provided me with that. Easy to use.

Thank you for publishing this. I have requested some additions to this module on the publishers web site to make it even more powerful with Community Builder integration.

Very good

This is a very good module that works as described. The only problem I've had with it id that when you set the height of the map to be, say 250, the controls regarding the marker that appear below the map disappear, which means you have to set those controls before re-sizing the map...other than that, it meets my expectations...9 out of 10 :)
easy to install and setup parameters, automatic position by entering the exact address or geographic coordinates. NO ADVERTISING. simply excellent.
