First make sure you install the module using the Joomla Installer in the administration, and then that you've published the module into the position you desire. Then you will be ready to change and configure the settings.
Go into the Joomla Administrator, and find the Module Manager. Here you will see a list of all modules, and go through until you see the JB Maps module. Click on the title and you will see the parameters that you can adjust for the module. When you need more information about a setting, roll over the text to the left and a tooltip will appear. Make sure to hit save when you are done.
I installed the module, but cannot see it?
When you install the module, it is setup in the module position 'left' and also disabled. Check that you have moved it to the appropriate module position, and that it is enabled.
Can I use auto for the width setting?
No it's not possible to set the width of the map to auto. You need to add the maximum width that the map will be displayed at based on the width of your templates main container. The module uses a max-width rule now which ensures that the map will never stretch beyond the width of the parent container in a responsive design.
