Hello, thanks for your patience.
We have finished the plugin investigation process and here are the details:
- the plugin works only with the Input element (search box is not intended);
- the plugin works only when there’s a map element on the page (the standard one);
- setting plugin API keys is optional - once you set up keys, the data will synchronize with your Google Account, but it’s not obliged.
We have updated the plugin documentation accordingly. Plus, to as per the fact plugin works only when the map is placed on the page, we have scheduled the plugin improvement (to make it work without the map) on the future plugin update. But, unfortunately, we can not provide you with the exact time estimates when it will be ready.
Once again thanks for your feedback and thanks for helping us to become better
