Settings Model

The Settings Model is a structural staple of most Craft plugins. It is generally not something you need to interact with directly.

If you want to manage the plugin's settings, go to Settings > Google Maps in the control panel. For more information, see the documentation regarding the plugin settings page...


You will rarely need to call the Settings Model directly, it is for internal use only.
