what are the main differences are between the Gmaps and Google Maps for ExpressionEngine modules? Anyone know? My preference is now going towards Gmaps because of the price, but I don't have a good idea of what the difference really are currently, in terms of futures etc.
In relation to the abilities of those modules:
What I want to do is have entries with a location marker field type. Those entries will then show that marker (and that marker only) in Google Maps on the front end. I'm sure that's possible, but what I'm not sure about are the other things I want to do, which are...
1) When I add a new entry with a location marker I want that location marker to be part of a "master map" also where ALL the different location markers from all the different entries are shown. Is this possible?
2) There will be different kind of location markers, for example, restaurants, hotels etc. Can I make it so that those different categories automatically use their own custom makrker type when I add them in an entry?
3) When looking at the master map, can I also filter the markers shown by showing only hotels for example (excluding the restaurants)?
I hope someone can clear those things up for me.
