I've used the FCPX Maps plugin and the new version is pretty stable (the original version did crash a lot). I did a lot of research before buying it and as far as I know this is the best plugin currently available for this particular task. The plugin is pretty straightforward; you do need to set up a Mapbox account first and you may have a bit of trial and error in terms of selecting the right number of map tiles for your purposes.

However, I'm sure you can find tutorials online for doing the same thing yourself using Motion (I believe Ripple Training did a free one a few years ago). If you think you'll need more flexibility that what the plugin offers it's probably worth learning how to do it in Motion which will then give you transferrable skills that you can use in other effects.
