Google Maps resolution

Is there a way to generate Google Maps at a lower than normal resolution?

We are thinking that if our app is accessed on a mobile network, the download of the map is causing the map page to not display fully. This may or may NOT be the cause but I want to test it to see.

We are referencing google maps like this:

http://maps.google.com/?q=1234 Any St+City,+state+zip

Thanks

I don't think you can get lower resolution maps from Google by any way.  The map tiles are createrd "as they are". But you will somehow achieve just what you are looking for automatically, as, the smaller your screen is, the fewer map tiles will be loaded for each view.
