In order to have custom coordinates go to https://www.gps-coordinates.net/ and find the latitude, and longitude of desired address. Then ‘Add New Pin’ in the plugin and paste your coordinates into the respective fields.
***NOTE** PLEASE LEAVE THE ADDRESS FIELD EMPTY
What does “Center Map” button do?
It will center the map to your custom location. Just drag the map to a certain location, and click ‘Center Map’, and the map it will capture the latitude and longitude of the center. It will use it to display it in the page. It is useful when you have multiple pins and you want to capture all the pins.
The default center, it will compute all the pins lat/long and find the median location. It works fine with pins that are located close to each other.
