Another thing worth pointing out is that you can style Google’s static maps (and the dynamic maps): http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/staticmaps/#StyledMapRules

Customising the map’s look and content can, in the right circumstances, make them feel much more a part of your site. Use with care though (and check your changes in other countries/areas that may use different colours).
