Are you looking to create an advanced map on your Elementor-powered website? Elementor has a native widget — called Google Maps — that allows you to create a map. However, you can only use the widget to create a basic map. You can install an add-on if you need to create an advanced map on your website. We have compiled the best Elementor add-ons that offer a widget to create an advanced map.
Elementor — as well as the add-ons on the list below — use Google Maps to provide the map. You need an API key to create an advanced map with Google Maps (read: How to get a Google Maps API key). The new Google policy also requires you to enable Google Cloud billing although you can still use Google Maps for free.
So, here is the list of the Elementor add-ons that you can use to create an advanced map on your website.
1. Essential Addons
Essential Addons is the best Elementor add-on to create a map. The Essential Addons’ Google Map widget allows you to create 8 map types: Basic, a map with multiple pins, static map, polyline, polygon, overlay, map with routes, and a 360-degree virtual tour.
In addition, you can also select one out of 6 map themes when creating a map with this add-on. With the ability to create a 360-degree virtual tour, Essential Addons is a perfect add-on for sites like zoo sites and tourism attractions. If you have a trip agency business, providing a 360-degree virtual tour allows your aspiring consumers to have an overview of the place you offer.
