Will google maps create more and more people with spatial orientation problems as they never learn to read real maps?

In brief: No

The skill set to evaluate google maps is the same as that required to view ordinary paper maps.
Spatial orientation issues occur in people with internal CNS wiring issues that lower the ability to interpret directions, etc. Turner's syndrome is a classic for this.
