I was looking for a Google Map component, and ended up trying all the other modules until I finally came upon this plugin. I installed and configured the plugin, then created a blank article, with just this plugin in it. I then created a menu item to the article and there was exactly what I was looking for. In addition, I could add other information on the page easily if I wanted.
This is a very good extension, with a many options. Best of all you can configure directions to display on your own map, or in a lightbox with printing ability!
This works and saved me from writing my own which I was on the verge of doing.
