Reviews

Perfect

Funciona perfecto, es justo lo que querĂ­a, poder mostrar mis tiendas y al hacer click en ellas mostrar informacion o acceder a una ruta directa con google maps.

Great Plug in and Support

Firstly I will say this is the only plugin that does what it does for free, after a lot of research this plugin offers the ability to sort by current location which was a $250 value on other plugins that made you pay for it.

On top of that, when I was having some issues, the creator got back to me right away, logged into my site and helped me remedy the issues, thank you again for a great plugin and the support to go with it!

Easy and simple – yet full of options

Having gone through numerous different packages to find a simple yet effective way to allow the public to search for a local energy assessor in their area, this is the only product that I have found that will handle the requirement of multiple tags to a single address.

If you have more than just a few sites to load I would recommend the Pro version as a must, even if only for the ability to upload your data.

Plugin and support absolutely perfect !

After trying out the free version, I decided to upgrade to pro.
And I can recommend both !

The plugin works perfectly and does everything as described !

German users can use the plugin, too:
In Germany addresses are written a bit different with “zip” before “town” and the developer has been very helpful with very quick replies, so you’ll find a really hands on support here !

The plugin is updated frequently.

So five stars from me!
Thanks for the good work and support Jurski !
