Perfect! I tried to use plugins with hundreds of thousands of downloads and reviews, but they couldn't do the job. This one is awesome and easy to use.

This is a great plugin. This has features that you have to pay for in other plugins. Its very intuitive so it's pretty easy to use. It also uses Open Maps which means you dont have to worry about greedy Google. I have no complaints hence the 5 stars!

This could be a good plugin. Unfortunately it does not work for non-admin users. Although I've bought the pro version there is still no solution for my problem after more than a week. The maps work like a charm. But for now it is not really useable.
