I use Delorme map software along with their new GPS module plugged into a tablet-PC and it really does save me a lot of time. Often, I'll start with the SPV map to find features on a rail line that could be interesting and then pinpoint the exact location in the map software. The GPS monitors my progress in real time (+/- 5 seconds); when I make a wrong turn I know it right away. The GPS unit is small enough to loop over the rearview mirror and is much more sensitive than my Garmin.
