I’m co-developing a mapping extension together with Ralf Becher, http://www.tiq-solutions.de which aims to replace any Google maps functionality floating around out there.

This is a completely FREE solution based on CloudMade API’s, sign up for a free api key!, with OpenStreetMap map-tiles.
Currently it supports placing of markers with custom titles, clustering of markers to support large numbers of markers in the same area, single marker selection support back to QV.
More functionality in the pipeline so check back on the community thread for updates.

All fame and glory goes to Ralf for setting this project in motion!
