I have a dynamic map that used to work correctly, but lately some of the pinpoints have been migrating around the country. These inaccurate pinpoints display correctly from, but are in the wrong locations on my website with your extension.

As a test, I created a 2nd page, hard-coding the addresses into the DMXZone Google Maps window. This static map correctly positions the pinpoints.

Hi Ed,
I am not sure i understand your issue. The map shows exactly what is returned as addresses from your database.

No, it does not. The pinpoint near Phoenix, AZ is supposed to be Stephenville, TX, and the point near Wichita Falls, TX is supposed to be Oklahoma City, OK.

Well your addresses have some unescaped html chars that are breaking it. For example:
"address": "2301-B W. South Loop<br>Stephenville, TX 76401"
should be
{"address": "2301-B W. South Loop Stephenville, TX 76401" -> without this <br> there..

You are correct; that was the issue. Thank you.
