This version will automatically update in 2.5 and 3.x.
If you want to upgrade from version 2.x then:
1. Install the new version 3.3. This is a new plugin, it does not replace the version 2.x plugin!
2. Do not open the plugin configuration! First you need to enable the new system plugin called "System - Google Map" in the list of plugins by clicking the red dot in the status column. This is the only way to copy all your parameters from the old plugin to the new one!
3. After enabling the plugin in the correct way (point 2) you can check if the settings of the old plugin are copied correctly by opening the new plugin configuration settings.
4. After that you can disable the old system plugin called "Google Map"

Language support available for all the parameters: English, French, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.
Please send me language files so I can add them to the plugin. Goto my website to contact me.

Look at the demo site first for documentation. If you've problems please do the checklist on the site: http://tech.reumer.net/Google-Maps/Documentation-of-plugin-Googlemap/checklist-placing-plugin-in-article.html

If this doesn't help or you have questions or new wishes please fill in the form on my website with an url that shows the problem and version of the plugin and Joomla.

Usage:
{mosmap width='100%'|height='400'|lat='52.052312'|lon='4.447141'| zoom='3'|text='your text'}
(when editing article goto html view to remove returns or < br /> when you copy this example)

PHP7.1 fix


Posted on 10 June 2017
Functionality

Blows up under PHP7.x, but fixable.

Ease of use

Good.

I used this to: To fix it for PHP7.x, edit the file "plugin_googlemap3_helper.php". Some objects are indirectly accessed, which is no longer interpreted correctly.
Example: $this->_mp->msid[$idx] should be $this->_mp->{msid[$idx]}
Solving lines 284ff and 311ff did it for me.

Functionality

Used to be the greatest!! Now "blows up" my site under PHP 7.1! Does not work for me anymore.

Ease of use

Good dokumentation and pretty straight forward.

Documentation

Very, very good!
