AppMaps MapQuest

Use MapQuest maps on your AppThemes website. This plugin provides an alternative to the default Google Maps capability in AppThemes.

Once installed, AppMaps MapQuest will enable the option to choose maps from MapQuest. When enabled, all maps for listings can be rendered with MapQuest maps. Additionally, locations can be geocoded using the MapQuest Geocoder API. AppMaps MapQuest also supports address autosuggest feature.

Other AppMaps plugins are available for Bing. You can have multiple AppMaps plugins installed at once and switch to a new map provider or geocoder at any time (including the default Google Maps).

AppMaps supports ClassiPress version 4.1.0+ and Vantage version 4.2.0+ and may not work with other maps plugins.

Setup is very simple, see installation tab for more info. Read the FAQ for more info about maps and geocoding.

Does AppMaps MapQuest provide maps?

Does AppMaps MapQuest provide geocoding?

Does AppMaps MapQuest provide address autosuggest feature?

Does the AppMaps plugin work with all your themes?
At this time, AppMaps only works with ClassiPress 4.1.0+ (our WordPress classified ads theme) and Vantage version 4.2.0+ (our WordPress directory theme). We plan to extend AppMaps JobRoller and HireBee in the future.

Do I need AppMaps to have maps in ClassiPress or Vantage?
No, you do not need AppMaps to display maps in ClassiPress or Vantage. Google Maps comes with ClassiPress and Vantage as the default for maps and geocoding. AppMaps provide alternatives to Google Maps in ClassiPress and Vantage.

Can I have multiple AppMaps plugins installed at the same time?
Yes, you can. You can even use one map provider for geocoding and a different one for map rendering.

What is geocoding?
Geocoding is the process of turning a conventional address into coordinates that computers can use. Different maps providers use their own geocoding formulas. Some geocoders may work better for your area.

What is address autosuggest feature?
The listing search form may include a Location or Address search field which allows finding listings near the given location. AppMaps provides Mapquest Place Search API implementation and provides a type-ahead location box.

Does AppMaps work with MapSupreme?
AppMaps has not been tested with MapSupreme or any other maps plugin.

What is MapQuest?
MapQuest is an American online web mapping service owned by AOL.

Unfortunately Map is not working as expected. We asked for Support but no one has answered our Request as of today 🙁

This is working much better than Google, because Google has large chunks of our islands not covered. This is a complete mapping system and I’m delighted to se e it is associated with OpenStreet maps, which I know to be complete and accurate.

Thanks again.

    Hi. I have bought this plugin because I have a problem with Google Maps – it seems that some site from my server is using up the 2500 geocoding limit, so the “find on map” function does not work. But after I have installed it I see that even though the maps are changed, the geocoder is still Google… so the problem stays. Is there a way to change to geocoder to mapquest?

    AppMaps Mapquest version 2.1.1 has been released today. Added new option to disable Search Autosuggest, which may incorrectly work for locations outside from the USA.
    Geolocation will be working anyway. When you enter an address in the search location box it will be processed on search form submit.
