when the api was first released last year, there wa sa a slight controversy on this in the google maps group, as the map dept. said no as commercial uses of the maps are against tos, but the adsense people said yes it was ok. It was eventually posted it was ok to use both together. but i would double check to make sure.
1. when theres a map on a page i think everyone's attention is automaticaly drawn towards the map and they then just block out whatever else is on the page.
2. the ads i get tend to be very locally based, and since the areas targeted don't have alot of advertisers, i tend to get alot of the dynamic keyword insertion stuff ala ebay.
