Google Map Buddy Generates High Resolution, Full Size Area Maps - Lifehacker

Once you get there, hit "Select area," then draw a rectangle around the area you want to capture. After fine-tuning the zoom level and hitting "Create Map Image," Map Buddy goes to work grabbing, tile by tile, your area's map.
