Embed Google Maps in a bogley post
You'll have 2 options. The first is the general Google Map embed button, which will let you embed a Google Map of any location including a "to and from" route - example Phoenix, AZ to Salt Lake City, UT
This is the button:
...but you will NOT be able to embed CUSTOM Google Maps with multi point or special routes or waypoints.
Please scroll down to the next post for that option.
Here's a Tutorial video:
And here is a sample Google Map of Moab, Utah using that general button. See that you'll be able to switch between Map, satellite, Terrain, and Google Earth views:

The second (and most awesome-est) is the SAVED Google Maps embed button:
When you sign into http://maps.google.com/ and make (or acquire) some custom maps, you can embed those links here. And when you make changes to those maps, like add a waypoint, change the route, or add some notes, those changes will be reflected in your post.
Here is a video:
And here is a great example from Summit. Notice some of the waypoints have Summit's photos tagged when you click them:

This seems to work for me on a basic level but something's lacking. I create the map and save in My Maps (or My Places as it's called in Google's new interface), copy the link into the middle of my SAVEMAP tag in the post, and preview. It shows my route, but with a default Map, not Satellite, view. How do I specify that the Satellite, or even better, the Earth view, shows up by default in the post? It seems like some of Udink's embedded map posts have shown up with Satellite view as default.
Also, I'd like to define the extents of the view. I don't want miles on either side of my path while my path takes up just a tiny bit in the middle of the image, requiring viewers to zoom in. Is this something that is handled in the My Maps/My Places portion of Google Maps? It seems like when I go there and change the view, it acts like it hasn't changed at all because it still says "Saved" on the save button.
Thanks for your help!Just where is it I could find bear, beaver, and other critters worth cash money when skint?

But usually you can avoid that step by zooming in how you like and then saving your map, then grab the link. You may have just saved your map when it was zoomed out a bit.
