First of all, let me just state that I don't care which version of Drupal I'd have to use (6 or 7). I have experience with both versions I just didn't need to work with Google Maps till now. The requirements are pretty basic (from what I understand):
1) Have a node for every company that I want to add in the map
2) In the node edit form I would like to add an address and have it added in a custom google map (or maybe copy-paste the link of a google map location)
3) Have a search function to find the nearest company for a given location
There are like tons of different modules out there, and I would like to be pointed to the right direction instead of looking through 15+ different modules just to finally realize that I need to write a custom module for myself.
Thanks in advance.
