This plugin's free version provides what other map plugins are charging for. I love the backend user interface. I went with the Google API just because that's what I'm familiar with. My client wants to emphasize shipping destinations at points in the USA and around the world. And we needed a responsive map. Check. I'm very happy with this plugin. It works well with BeaverBuilder (but you need to use the Shortcode to embed a map...no big deal) alongside GravityForms. No conflicts, very stable, and so easy to use my clients can update the maps themselves with just a little orientation. Great job!

Great plugin, very flexible and easy to use. It can give a "Obsolete jQuery version" error but usually you can just go into inspector and delete the error, and then you can edit the map anyway.

I have been using MapPress Maps for WordPress for years and it has made a tremendous difference on my website. People often say the best feature of the website is the maps! Whenever I have a question or issue, the developer is right there to help out. It is definitely the best plugin I have!
