    GPS Maps for Hiking/Mt Biking

    Anyone out there recommend a good GPS solution for hiking where you don't have cell phone coverage, where google maps, windows live, etc won't work. I'm looking at "GPS Tuner 5.4" but it looks rather involved. Was wondering if there are better options out there. I use a Freedom Mini GPS with my i760.

    Delorme and National Geographic both have Windows Mobile companions to their topographic map programs that are GPS enabled.

    GPSVP is free and allows you to load your own maps to off the 'net - meaning you could load anything you can find, including topos.

    Seemed a bit complicated to deal with to me... but the price is right.

    Thanks for the info, and yeah free is the right price. I will check out GPSVP and I'm currently trialing GPS Tuner ($24 or $34 with free one year upgrade). After I figure out which one is better I'll post my results in case anyone else is interested.
