USGS Topo maps for your handheld

PocketquadsThis gives new meaning to the phrase "he’s got the whole world in his hands"….Prosurv now offers regional topographic maps on 4 GB SD memory cards for your Windows Mobile device running WM 2003, 2003 SE or WM 5. Also included is PocketQuads software, which integrates the topo maps with a GPS receiver if you’re pairing one to your handheld. For the outdoorsy type, this might be a nice step up from current GPS software and information, but it will cost you. Each set of regional maps is $299 direct and provides both 1:100,000 and 1:250,000 scale maps. If you want greater detail in your particular state, you can nab an edition that includes a 1:24,000 scale as well, but there’s no break in the price. I think I’ll stick with the paper maps that never fold up quite right for now.
