I spent quiet a lot of time to look for a good maps plugin. I tried 5 or 6 diferent. I found MapPress Maps for WordPress the best. In its free version, you can do a lot. And if you want more, you can have a premium version with many more options. When I tried to use this plugin, I found an issue. I wrote to the founder, Chris. He answered me diferent times until he found THE solution. He was not forced to do it because I am a free user. But he did. And I do thank him. If you are looking for a great maps solutions, here is the best plugin.

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!
