If you can make it work with 1 map in 4K, consider making it a 16K game
so you can have all 4 maps.  Each bank of 4K would contain a complete
copy of the program code, but a different map.

I agree. I definitely vote for multiple maps.

You might be able to do some compression on the map like I'm doing for my RPG map. Basically I define rectangular fill areas. In your case you might be able to just store horizontal and vertical lines (where the roads are).
