Hi, Brian! The extension uses Google Maps API, so it will work with any country where the search via Google Maps API works. Also you may check it on our demo site.

I am quite happy with the extension - importing works like a breeze and adapting the layout is also quite easy. But there is one thing I don't like at all - this is the automatic location recognition - because it is not very precise and works sometimes and sometimes not. Is there a way to disable this in the plugin, the code or via the Google Developer Settings?

Hi Tom, Looks like your site uses HTTP, because when an HTTPS connection is being used, the location can be found much more precisely. However you can disable the customer's position detection by removing the line 175 " IWD.StoreLocator._alternativeGeoLocation(); " in the file: " skin/frontend/base/default/js/iwd/storelocator/storelocator.js "

I purchased this for my website and it does not work. Is there an updated version so that we can service our customers properly ? We do not feel it is right to have to buy it again. Our web developer has contacted your service dept but has had no reply. Hopefully because you were closed for Thanksgiving. Could someone contact us. Thanks.

Robert, there is a setting to limit the number of locations shown in the results by default. Pagination would be added to the page so the user can view additional locations. If this solves your needs then the setting is labeled "Stores Per Page" and you manually enter the number of locations to show per page, i.e. 10.

We have released a new version of the Store Locator with a patch for this; you may download the latest version from your customer account. Should you need any assistance then please let us know.

Hi Mike, the Store Locator extension only shows the "Country" field if you have multiple locations in different countries. If all of your stores belong to the same country, then the "Country" field will not appear.

If our customer shipping + billing address configuration within our Magento store is set to USA only, would this extension mirror the same settings and only allow us to select USA as a country when we upload store addresses? Although we ship/bill to USA customers only, for the map we want the ability to upload stores located in other countries. The last map we bought did not allow us to do this.

Katie, the Store Locator extension will only show locations on the map that you have created in your store. If you wish to only show locations in the USA then only create stores in this specific country. Conversely, if you would like to show locations in multiple countries then all you need to do is create a store for each location you would like to show on the map.

Hi Travis, this is an excellent question! At the moment, the Store Locator does not support this feature - you can only locate store's according to your search criteria. The extension is open source so it is possible to add this feature; we can assist with this adjustment if you would like. In the meantime, I will notify our product team of this request and see if it can be planned for a future release.

Great locator extension. Works as expected!
Reviewed 6 months ago Verified Buyer
The documents/installation guide that come with it was very helpful. I'm glad that you have it hosted on a google doc. Most Mage plugins are provided via pdf/text and are never updated.

The plugin works great and has a lot of easy to manage settings.

The extension looks great, this is the main reason we chose it.
We had a few issues during installation but the support team was very responsive and help us resolve everything quickly.
Also after installation we needed so fix a couple of things and again we got great service.

I have over 800 dealers and needed something that was easy to upload dealer data and link the geo-location. This plugin has never failed yet. Bonus - it’s responsive.

I gave it only 4-stars because I wish it didn’t overwrite my style guide. Do not set fonts and font colors. I would rather have my stylesheet handle that. Another plus with 1.5 (had 1.3) I don’t need to have placeholder images. Setting is in admin. It would be nice if I could also set website since I have too many and don’t bother filling that out.
