    I’m using your plugin in a membership wordpress site, using BuddyPress, which may have a large number of members. On the Members Directory page I’m including a distance proximity search for nearby members. I’m concerned that if a call is made to the Google Maps API to determine the distance to each member, the costs will be huge. So, I need to know if distance is calculated using the latitude/longitude coordinates stored in the database for each member or does it make calls to the Google Maps API to determine distance? Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks.
    John Conder.

    Hi John,

    The plugin does not use Google API to calculate the distance to each user. The distance is being calculated via PHP and using the set coordinates of each member that are stored in the locations DB table of the plugin.

    I hope this helps.
