I just spent 4 hours trying to get a new map working & then I come to here & find the answer right in front of me.

Thanks to BaconFries for keeping on top of this fantastic extension :D

Hi when I first rebuilt this version of the map API V3 it did have a offset in the code, but I had to remove it because it was causing the map icon to be put out of place and not showing the said latittude/longitude position of the location that the user inserted into the extension variables. I will check if I still have a copy of that on Mediafire or backed up and a pendrive If either is the case I will post it temporarily for you to try it out and se it it is what you need...
