    Osclass is a fantastic classified script. Radius search features is the one thing that I find lacking though.

    If you view any of the main popular classified sites they have a search by location and/or post/zip code. You type the first part of the location and it autocompletes / suggests the City or Region location for you.

    The Google api is limited to only 2,500 free requests a day, for a busy site this can get expensive to pay for extra searches and slow the site down too.

    Can the plugin be designed to use one of the free geolocation databases that are available to improve search times and reduce costs?
