Freeze it then unfreeze before use but that would partialy make sense only if used extremly rare.
The best way is to configure autorun properties of an application and disable it's after startup receiver.
Eventualy you can disable some other event receviers like power connected. Other receivers like app installed could be due to installation of some parts related to or used by maps (i have no idea what that might be for this app) so if you install such things you should not disable them (or enable them as neccesary, it all depends what you do and how often). Then, maps will run again when you install/uninstall any app but can be force stopped.
Gemini app manager could do it but i had some issues on newer versions of CM7. Autostarts app (recomened by kabaldan after gemini failed for me) by michael elsdorfer curently works best. But it's not free app.
