Questions and Answers:

Q: How much does the Google maps API cost?
A: It's free unless you have an extremely large forum.

Q: Can members manually set their location?
A: No.

Q: How accurate are the markers on the map?
A: Markers will not show exact locations.

Q: Can the markers not include usernames?
A: Yes there's an option for that.

Q: I would like to know how many users will be selected based on the Last activity days, how can I do that?
A: Add membersmap/lastactivity to your forum URL.

Q: I have a subscription with ipapi.co and have a key, can I use that to overcome the 1000 per day limit with the free version?
A: Yes. Use the Ipapi key option.
