Can’t fault this amazing plugin. Nothing else comes close. Add in the amazing customer support and professional service and it is impossible to beat. This free World Map version has plenty of customisation but we needed Asia split to show The Middle East. No problem at all. For a very modest price we achieved all we needed. Customer support is superb – highly responsive and professional. Looked at dozens of others before this and none came near. Very happy indeed. Highly recommended.
