Just provides a screenshot of the map. Can't move it around or interact with it. Shows longitude and latitude that one cares about. It's pointless.

According to instruction, very simple to set-up with a shortcode. Gave it a try, but always get New York (the default as per example) on the map. Tried to remove and insert again, with the same result. Wasted a couple of hour on this.

Não tem opção nenhuma, e o mapa é fixo
