Always have trouble with the integration of Google Maps on your site? Always struggling to get it work? Well, those days are gone with the Google Maps (Gmaps) plugin for ExpressionEngine. You can now easily create Maps, markers, polygon, routes and more! It support all major functionality of the Google Maps API and more will come.


Note: As for version 5.x, Gmaps stopped feature development on the EE2 branch but only do bugfixes. Gmaps Docs for version 4 and below can be found here

Breaking change: As for version 5.x, Gmaps changed a lot of Template tags, instead of using the method to do add markers, you have now only one tag for the map and multiple tags for markers, rectangles, circles and more. See the change log for the changes.
