Excellent extension at a really good price! Works exactly as it says it does, great friendly support with quick response time. I had no problems installing this and running on my site, but had some pre- and post-purchase queries which were answered very promptly.
It comes with great documentation, easily configurable options, it works and it looks great!
A must-have extension for any Magento site needing a store locator, highly recommended!

This extension works out of the box on CE 1.7.02 just follow the instructions they provide. There was even instructions on how to install if your magento theme wasnt stock standard. I had no trouble, but one thing i would recommend is using a good tool for Long/Lat http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html
I say there was excellent after sales support... because i thought there was a problem initially, but it was just my co-ordinates were off... I had a speedy resolution from FME which means i would probably consider buying extensions from them in the future without hesitation... Thanks

I just purchased this extension and am very pleased with the results. Before I bought this extension, I had my hesitations about whether or not it would meet my needs. I am pleased to say that with a few adjustments, this extension works very, very well. Most of the success came from a VERY prompt and helpful support team. They answered my questions immediately and changed elements of my installation to make it work as stated. I would recommend this extension and FME. BTW- I am using this extension in Magento 1.7 and it works great.
