I'm strictly old fashioned---maps and compass for me. I have a friend with a very smart phone and he just dials up a map and enlarges it to show the exact terrain. It also has a compass built into the phone. Pretty cool.

Where I do find the GPS essential is on the sailboat. It makes a great navigation tool, especially when the weather conditions are a problem or at night.
