I got another one for you: National Geographic's "Pocket TOPO!"
http://maps.nationalgeographic.com/topo/sync.cfm
Works with their TOPO! USA series (scanned USGS topo quads). You have
to buy maps separatly, ~$80 per state (or region, for smaller states,
like North East for e.g.)
I've been playing with it for couple of days, looks pretty decent.
Map's legibility is excellent, but the PDA's part of the program has
limited functionality compared to desktop part. I'll do more
"in depth" review when I get to know it better.

Out of interest - the quality of digital recordings and playback is IMHO significantly less than that of digital. Not a good analogy.

I"m not sure I'm following, do you mean less than "analog"?

Hi,

How about a roundup of GPS "PC" solutions? Can one be done too, please?

If you want Voice guidance in the US, it's easy:
Intellinav OEMs, i.e. iGuidance and Routis!

In Europe that would be MapSonic.

I'm about to order Memory-Map's 'Discoverer' solution. It offers all the features of their Navigator, but won't import 3rd party maps (not an issue for me). What is of note is that buyers should know that while Navigator does import other maps, it does NOT ship with any. In addtion, to utilize the the 3D feature (very nice, from what I can see), you either have to use a map package that includes elevation data, or purchase that data from M-M. Discoverer, on the other hand, comes with complete state map packs that include the elevation data, and is the same price as Navigator. Soooo, for me, Discoverer is the way to go.

Another solution - my favorite so far - is CompeGPS (http://www.compegps.com). It allows you to download maps from the internet and has a very clean interface.

Off-road newbie seeking assistance.
I have been happily navigating/driving various parts of the world with my Mio 168 and a Destinator solution. Still want to keep driving, but the unavailability of street maps in various corners of the globe has me looking at using digital "paper" maps (I said I was a newbie!).
I have seen the solutions using the UK Ordnance survey Maps and the US equivalents, and one or two other European countries and would like this "quality" for more far-flung corners, where digital maps are not yet available.
So, the question finally, which of the currently available software you have listed allows for input of scanned (paper) maps ? Is this "the way forward" for me or are there other solutions ?

I'm looking for this sort of software and clicked on your link only to find that Topo Sync is no longer available?! Anyone know of something similar?

I have been playing with MapAway this weekend. The waypoint system is kind of tricky for a newbie like myself, but it is easy to load maps from Google Earth and they look great. It has tons of configuration options.

Here is a link to an in depth review. Don't miss the link to a trial version at the bottom of the review.

Ozi explorer has this ability. I just loaded the maps from USGS for the whole state of Utah (USA) and will be testing the moving map and trail save features next month. The state of Utah was 10 gig - I had to install a new hard drive in my "jeeputer" in order to go this route. Ozi is pretty feature laden - you need your computer skills to consider this option.

Fugawi will also allow you to scan in maps. You need to know the coordinates for calibration of the maps. Most maps have coordinates marked and you just need to input 3 coords. to calibrate.
