3 new Google Maps mashups from the USA

ApartmentRatings.com + Google Maps - This U.S. Google Maps mashup brings data on over 49,000 apartment communities in 4,165 cities and 270,000 renter ratings. The housing site has developed a way to display a virtually unlimited number of maps points by pre-fetching data dynamically as the user browses the map. This enables users to explore the 600+ apartments in Los Angeles or 1,200+ apartments in Houston on a single Google Map without reloading the map or losing context. Check out the map in action for the city of Houston here.

Betterbidder.com + Priceline.com + Google Maps - This mashup from betterbidder.com lets you bid on the priceline.com auction site more intelligently by showing you the previous bids that were placed in some U.S. cities on a Google Map. Check this forum post and select from one of the available cities: Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, San Francisco or Seattle. "Keep in mind the maps only track hotels Better Bidder has seen wins for, so not every hotel is listed." [via]
