    Hello,

    i guess a lot more people would buy and love your script, if you also would support openstreetmap.org
    I guess the API is extreme simple, nearly the same as google-maps – so easy for you to offer

    BUT from the customer point of view…. openstreetmap.org is FREE,…
    google-maps costs A LOT of money when you get some traffic to your site.

    IF any other customer reads this posting and you would like to have this feature too,
    just reply to this posting. Thanks!

    An alternative to Google maps would be a great move
    It can also be rather time consuming and sometimes nearly impossible, for a new Google user to create a google maps account
    The amount of information that they now require is okay if you are an established business but for start ups, the info that Google ask of you is not available.
    I am having problems setting up my Google maps account so an alternative would greatly help me.

    That would be brilliant
    the cost of using google can very quickly mount up

    using openstreetmaps instead would eb a fantastic addition

    Hi Guys

    I’m just wondering how this is coming on, will this be something that’s going to be added in the next few updates?
    I would love this as it would lower our costs

    or would it be best that we request this as a custom project

    Hi guys

    That’s great news, many thanks

    Will this have the same functionality as google maps,

    Clicking the vendors address on their store page
    Vendors shown on store location map

    If that’s the case could the vendors location be taken from the store address this will remove one more item that needs to be filled out when vendors sign up

    Hello, is there any update in regards to timeline? I can´t longer afford paying google as I have like 100K API calls a month.

    If it still takes time to move to openstreet – Is there no chance to exclude API call from product page? I do not use any map or anything on product but still issue a API call which is driving cost.

    Need a quick solution as like I mentioned cost are not bearable anymore 🙁

    Hi, thanks for the info. I updaten and choose street map option. The address field does not pull any location data though. So radius search doesn´t seem to work?

    Is there any documentation?

    Thanks

    Hi, I now have a map showing on my sellers listing page (which was not here yesterday) whereas I didn’t change anything on my settings…

    The issue is that the map is always showing Egypt whereas all my stores are in Asia. And it’s NOT showing any of my stores…
    Also, I would like the map to be in English (currently, it shows each country in its own alphabet so Egypt in Arabic, China in Chinese and so on).

    > Where can I manage / enable / disable this new map module?

    Thanks!
