I noticed that a couple weeks ago, they were very handy for
geocaching, haven't checked out the new offerings yet.  I always
expected them to just disappear one day.

That's a bit pricy.  DeLorme and National Geographic offer
scanned maps and Delorme has digital maps which work well with
their PN-20 GPS receiver.  (Note - the maps are good, the user
interface and software performance are not.)
