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.

    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?
