If you get a copy of Memory-Map, the package downloads onto any PDA device using Windows Mobile. You can download the federal topo maps into Memory Map and then onto your device. It's very slick. I use it on my MioP550. The battery life sucks, so I turn it on only when I really need to know where I am. I don't know how well these devices (Blackberry, PDA's) will hold up in less than ideal weather. The're not that tough but you can download whatever map you want into them vs being forced to buy maps from Garmin or magellin.
