If you want to use Google's new embeddable maps on LJ... can't.

While LJ lets most media sites that use an OBJECT tag to embed in an entries HTML, Google is using an IFRAME to host its maps. As part of its defence against cross-site scripting attacks LJ blocks IFRAMEs from any entry HTML.

So no Google Maps for you...

(also no Popfly, nor Google Mashups, nor - the list goes on...)
