Anyway I can stop this?

I think a lot of google services (location) uses maps... Maybe even the new google now. Anyhow go into settings in google maps and turn all of the settings off, especially "location history". Make sure android's settings for location access is turned off. When you reboot, maps should run a lot less if ever. Hasn't come up for me since I did it this morning when I first read your message. No need to uninstall it (might get system errors).
You might loose a lot of services if you do it on a mobile device.
It does run a lot, but you can get more battery by having your screen turn off sooner or not as bright, even not using live wallpaper. I use maps and location services too much to consider turning it off.
Hope that helps some.
