Reviews

I chose this plugin with a very specific set of features in mind: I needed to map a route for a Walk-a-Thon fundraiser and then track the participants' progress along that route in real-time. WP GoMaps has proven to be the best option, by far! After purchasing the Pro & Gold Addons at a very reasonable price, I reached out to Tech Support to help me implement the functionality. Matthew Lau responded right away and worked with me diligently until every detail was perfected. Thanks to him, I am now a superstar in the eyes of my client! Matthew was knowledgeable, competent, and willing to go the extra mile. This plugin and support staff have earned my highest recommendation.

Thanks for Matthew Lau's great customer support. After I send my enquiry, it took one day to fix everything. Really great plugin!

I recently upgraded our plugin. The original web developer is no longer working with our company. As we installed the upgrade we encountered issues. Our web developer wasn't able to troubleshot the problem. I have heard of issues with contacting some plugins. I reached out to CODECABIN and Glen was on it. He was responsive, friendly and helped our web developer get to the bottom of the issue. Problem solved!

Well, if you need a map/POI plugin sure you have tried this one, as it is I guess the most used... but! there is a big but! Try to go pro! Why? Sometimes it happens that software developer put much effort to develop, and little to no effort on support right? Well, here it's not like that. I went Pro and wanted a customisation I could not make by myself, so I asked some hints to the WP Go Maps support team, explaining my scenario... and in one day Matthew replied: hey Livio, this with this... and he sent directly the JQuery customisation in my email!!! So what can I say? any penny (that really, is not much their pro price) is worth it 😉
