Are you tired of default marker icon?
Ok, this is the right time to change it!

After downloading and installing this module, you’ll be able to use your favourite images for the pinpoints of your RVM map.
The module allows you to use a different image each map ( one per map ), change it or restoring the default one whenever you want.

Requirements

Works from  RVM version 5.3.1 onward and only in maps where explicitly written in the map features (  most of maps support markers ).
Download latest RVM version from  for WordPress site

Installation

Very easy to install.  Just:

  1. Purchase the module
  2. Download the module onto your computer

Select Your Favourite Image As Marker icon
Select Your Favourite Image As Marker icon and update the post

We suggest to use image with .png or .ico format and transparent background, so to nicely overlap your map. After selected your image, just update the post to see the new marker icon on your map.
