Review #324: Very good Need extra location pins
by AzBaja on

I love this map. Makes a great add on to our board. 2 things we would like to see are some extra location pins for events, Trails, Stores etc. Make it so an admin or a moderator can add them, this would be real nice.

Review #283: Excellent Awesome implementation of a needed module!
by Rayvenhaus on

This is one of the best little modules that I've seen in a long time. It is well written, well executed and the author is motivated and responsive to customer requests.

It is easy to setup and maintain as well. It well deserves the 5 stars that I gave to it.

Review #276: Very good Very interesting module ...
by Gallowglas on

unfortunately not very useful for sites outside the USA,
because Google often lacks maps and images (especially europe Neutral )
