Okay, here’s a really weird idea, but it might be what you are looking for.
Try creating just a plain vanilla html file that contains the code for the map and the sidebar like in the link you provided. (Which is very, very interesting…I have never seen Google maps for this purpose.) Upload that to some safe place on your blog, and then use an
<iframe>to place that file on your blog.
Completely untested, but all my brain can come up with right now.
That is the only way I could get it to work. I didn’t know if a
<iframe>would be the best way of doing it. I was trying to get it to work within wordpress, but everything i’ve tried doesn’t work. (
(Which is very, very interesting…I have never seen Google maps for this purpose.)
Why is this such an odd way of doing it? How else could the data be displayed on the map with a usable sidebar?

I think Ken was commenting on how cool and “fun” this usage of google maps is. Usually, we see it for a business location, or a tourist attraction… never have we seen it used as a “route” with multiple “stops”. I love the idea also!!
I don’t know very much about the google maps api. I’ll try to take a look at it and see how they are reloading that map without having to reload the entire page. I would imagine each link in the sidebar has a script associated with it when you click it… which then loads the corresponding map.
Although I have no idea… but I’ll try to learn a little about it.
