In the very near future you'll be seeing some new buttons in the post editor for inserting maps into your posts. In the meantime, you can insert a google map by clicking the Insert Media button (looks like a film strip). Then paste in the link to your SAVED Google Map. This method will not yet work for a regular google map but will once the buttons are live.

Example:

The link you copy from within your saved google map like this:
Code:
http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=214533597045798101523.0004b145b94dfa9d2ec51&msa=0&ll=38.372616,-110.27235&spn=0.074827,0.075617

Pasted into the insert media button will look like this:

Or even easier, just paste that into the post and the system will auto-embed it. :)
