I love it. I have been looking for this for ages. It took me a while to discover that the endpoint settings for Remote Services appear in the Geocoding Status and Districting Status fields after you install, but the rest was straightforward. I gather you have to actually change an Address record for it to work - so does not operate on existing addresses until you make a change and save.

This is easy to install and configure if you have a modicum of admin experience. I noticed that geocoder.us is picky about address formation. Test addresses directly at geocoder.us to ensure the addresses are well formed.
