sMapCC is WordPress Google maps plugin which will insert google map anywhere in your page. It is created for easily pointing location on the map and calculating the route to it from current web site visitor/user location or from any other location. It can be used for showing map in blogposts (for example to show location of conference), in contact section to show how to reach your business, or for example if you are running real estate site you can show map for every property and route to it. And you can also customize pointer tooltip/info window so you can put price, image and additional short info there.
