Here’s how you can change your Google Maps Placeholder to match your location, and/or Google Maps style.

First, a quick introduction on how placeholders are set.

Changing the Google Maps placeholder with FTP

You can replace the image used for Google Maps placeholder in your root folder and then: wp-content/plugins/complianz-gdpr/assets/images/placeholder-google-maps.jpg

For premium, it will look like wp-content/plugins/complianz-gdpr-premium/assets/images/placeholder-google-maps.jpg

NB. Make sure you use the same file name, placeholder-google-maps.jpg, and use 721×421 pixels. You can save the above image for reference.
