Hey, if anyone wants a GPS that also includes topo maps, DeLorme has a limited time sale (until April 6): $125 for their PN-40 model (that's the one I use). This is one of the best GPS units around, and it comes with topo maps for all of North America - with Garmin you normally pay over $100 just for the maps.
Here's the link for purchase: http://shop.delorme.com/OA_HTML/DELibeCCtdItemDetail.jsp?item=30536§ion=10460
Be warned: this is a geeky product and the map software only works on Windows. You can use the mapping software without the GPS, much like you might use Google maps. One of the cool things you can do with a GPS is sync your photos to the GPS track so that you can display the photos on a map.
