How do I change the "Default View" label of the dropdown filter and search field?

UPDATE 12-2016: The label has been moved when compared to older versions. You can change the label by following these steps:

To change the "Default View" label on the filter dropdown:

Navigate to the following file in the plugin file:

mapifypro-master > templates > map.html.php

You can do a search for 'Default View' without the quotes and find 2 instances (on lines 39 and 98).  One is for the dropdown and the other is for the interactive list beneath the map.

Screenshots for reference:

To change the Search label:

On line 162, you'll find the following code:

    <input type="text" name="mpfy_search" class="mpfy_search" value="" placeholder="Enter city or zip code" />

-Simply change the "Enter city or zip code" to change the default message that appears within the search field.

    MapifyPro now also supports WPML:

    By using WPML you can automatically change the language of any aspect of MapifyPro.

    I want to change Default View on the map to Search By Type, but the file called "map.php" in the templates folder of the plugin doesn't have a line 173 to edit. Where should I be looking?
