Being new to this whole GPS operation ( have a eTrex enroute from Amazon) I wonder if anyone could recommend a map program that I could load on to my PDA (Palm Zire 72s) since the basic eTrex I ordered does not have mapping capability.  Free would be great, but a reasonable cost is OK.
Hope this is the right place for this question.

Check out Mapopolis. I think they have both Palm and Pocket PC versions.  It's a highly rated program.  It's probably not as cheap as you were hoping though.

I know magellan makes (or at least did) a mapping software for the PalmOS. I am not sure what models it is supported on, but may be worth checking into if you haven't already.

Thanks.
    While Mapopolis is not the price range I wanted (Free!!)  it certainly fits the bill..  However, since my GPS is an eTrex (bottom of the food chain) they "..don't currently have a cable to conenct the eTrex to the Palm".  Even without a link, the pgm looks like it will work for me.   All I need now is someone to make a cable with the wierd eTrex connector to a female USB connector.

To PC MEdic,
   Checked out the Magellan website.  Looks like it doesnt work for the Palm Zire 72s.  Thanks for trying!!

PCMedic,
    Checked out KMaps, but seems right now it doesn't work with a PalmOne Zire 72s.  Said they are working on it.
