This plugin is very useful when you want to do more than just showing a static map on your WordPress website and the support service is fast and very helpful (thanks Matthew for your help on espagnerurale project).
20 May 2022
We are using the plugin to show our partners on a map and give users plenty of options to search and filter them by different topics and categories. The plugin does what it does great with plenty of customization options out of the box and even more with minimal setup effort! Installation and setup was pretty straight forward, since then, it runs without any errors or bugs and is administrated very intuitive. It is also very well documented with how-tos and videos. One thing I got to mention is the outstanding support I got by Matthew Lau from CodeCabin. He replied within a few hours and I got every question answered, and every problem solved. He even helped with minimal customizations by delivering custom CSS, which in result looks great in frontend (had some problems with ordering and styling the filters). Keep up the good work, Sebastian
20 May 2022
I had a problem with the google maps pro plug-in for a very long time, but with the help of Matthew it was solved in a day and working like charm now.

In the ranking of plugins, it is among the TOP for me. Support works perfectly. The big difference between the Free and Pro versions in functionality.
17 May 2022
We’re a labour union and we were using this plugin to map all office locations across Italy. Since we’re an NPO organization the development team kindly supported us with a free upgrade to PRO version, enabling us to customize the map further to our needs. Many thanks to the dev team for this valuable experience!
