Default Google Maps Module

Hi. Love the system, it's been a lifesaver for us.

Is there any chance of getting a module to allow users to post an address to a place of business that's being rated, with that address displaying on Google Maps or a similar system?

It would be a huge feature for us and improve the functionality of GARS as we're using it dramatically.

Thanks!

I would like it too, however I dont have the time to look into it, nor have I ever worked with the google maps api. If someone wanted help with the gars integration side, I could offer it, but someone would need to do the rest

I'd just like to revive this request. This would be great to have some sort of map integration with GARS. I'm looking into ways to do it right now even with a simple "map it" link to another site. But seeing the map would be awesome!

<edit> Integrating something like this would be a good starting point. I'm going to do it manually to all my existing GARS entries and manually do it as I go, but an addon to do this on the fly would be nice. Is there a way to do this with google maps?
