Gmaps is really a great Google Map system.
Easy to implement, a lot of option and plugins to consolidate the options to build a perfect Google Map inside EE easily.

The support from Rein is very effective, Gmap is frequently updated !

I used this in conjunction with the GMaps Data plugin to create a location proximity search. Had some issues initially, but the developer helped me out in a timely manner. Works great now.

This is an amazing Module! Well documented, easy to use, and Rein’s support is outstanding!! We had to migrate from the other Google Maps Module that is no longer being supported and all I had to do was point this Module at the existing “address” field and it just worked! A bargain at 3x the price!

In my opinion the best mapping add-on for EE. It´s wide documented and examples are great for starters. I would love to see infobox support from the box.

Excellent add-on. I would love to see this add-on packaged in a way so that the zip file could be recognized and installed by Updater.

As stated, integrating Googöe Maps never has been so easy. And above all, the developer offers first class service by adding feature requests. Price is good, almost too good. Recommended!
