Fantastic. Styleware are specialists in K2 extensions and they ensure they all integrate with each other.
I used this to: My personal Joomla project
I have been using Styleware K2 Maps for a little over a year now. During this time I have enjoyed a very positive experience using this plug-in. It allows for a great deal of customization and versatility. Recently, I came across a unique situation where I required the two unique sets of plug-in settings. This was not something built into the plug-in. I decided that creating a unique duplicate of this plug-in was an appropriate solution. I contacted Styleware to ask for help making the needed changes and asked how much it would cost. I was very pleasantly surprised that they made the changes for me at no cost and in a timely manner to boot. I was/am very appreciative as this was not something Styleware HAD to do. Overall this is a great product if your using K2 and even though I have rarely ever needed support, when I have it has been spot on and even surprised me positively. I strongly recommend this plug-in to anyone with mapping needs.
I've used this plugin on a number of sites over the past couple of years and never once had an issue. It does what it says, out of the box, allowing you to map items on a google map. Perfect for store locations, properties and much more.



Most recently I installed an existing site, and it failed to work... so I looked through their forums and posted a question. It was answered almost immediately with an offer of assistance from the developer.



Then the developer went above and beyond the normal and fixed the issue right on my site.



You can't buy that kind of help for their price.. but its there.



Fantastic, Super, Great.
