Is there any way you can add the ability to use an address and city, state, country and it shows the map for it? I'm afraid some of my users aren't technical enough to know what coords are or how to use them.

Hey AndyB,
What does this mean? "Added more variables to make configuration easier." I couldn't find a difference. Works great by the way, thanks!

Add-on installed and works great, but just one question: Is there an easy way to make the View Map LINK in the Visitors Tab, open in a new Tab/Window?

I'm going to have to write-up some instructions for our users and I think it'll be a bit easier for them to grasp if the default-location view on Google Maps open in a seperate Tab/Window.

EDIT:
AndyB suggested "Why not just add a Help link. So when they click the View Map link, the bread crumb on top will have a Help link top right of the screen." Great idea, so I'm off to read about Help Links now via @James [How-To] Create New Help Menus Development Tutorial.
