At last after me being lazy and a fair few modifications I have made the module capable of using the Googlemap V2 which has the capabilities of heaps more features along with the main function of displaying a fair chunk of Europe.

Please read the readme as there is a sqlupdate to run as google have changed the way the zoom levels work so that in time they can add greater zooms with higher quality photos.

If there are any problems please let me know and I will try fix them. Either comment below or there is a forum here
