Store Locator Plus allows you to set a custom marker for all of your locations.

The Location Sensor is a Power Add On feature.
The location sensor feature is turned on/off with a simple check box. When it is turned on the Store Locator Plus plugin will query the user’s browser and request their current location. If the browser allows location queries it will return their geographic location which will be used to set the default search location.
Power 4.5 General User Interface
Please note that users can disable this feature in their browser on a per-page or internet-wide basis. Some browsers do not support this feature and some browsers return inaccurate location data.
Location Aware Browsing
Accuracy varies greatly from location to location. In some places, our service providers may be able to provide a location to within a few meters. However, in other areas it might be much more than that. All locations returned by our service providers are estimates only and we do not guarantee the accuracy of the locations provided.
The Store Locator Plus plugin is now part of the WordPress Translate project. You can get the current status of the Store Locator Plus translations on the WordPress Translation website. If you would like to see the plugin fully translated into your language, please send a request to be added to the WordPress translate team for your language. As soon as a language reaches 100% completion for the stable release of the Store Locator Plus plugin, the custom language files will be removed from Store Locator Plus and be replaced by the more-efficient Translate system.

Store Locator Plus Appearance
Store Locator Plus comes with a variety of styles to provide a basic style framework that will attempt to match your locator page to various WordPress themes installed on your site. You can see the list of Plugin Styles under the Store Locator Plus Experience Tab / View panel.
To create a locator page that has a zip/postal code search box, a map of your locations, and the results list put the [slplus] shortcode on a page or post.
Go to Pages in your WordPress admin.
Create a new page.
Name it “Locations”.
Enter [slplus] in the main content area of the page.
First create a new page for your WordPress site where the Store Locator Plus plug-in will reside. Add the shortcode (a special label inside of square brackets that is used within WordPress pages and posts to display the output from a plugin). You place a shortcode within the text of your page or post and the plugin will “do it’s magic”
To display the Store Locator Plus search form, map, and search results using the defaults you have setup via Map Settings in the admin panel, use the following shortcode:
The base plugin will replace the shortcode with a search form, a Google Map, and a results section below the map. Depending on how you have the plugin configured the map and results may start by showing some or all of your locations.
- Hint: Do not copy and paste off this page or all you will see is the text. You must type in the shortcode onto your WP page.
