Personally I use Mapsource 6 portable version with the Northwest Topos v0.16 map set, which is quite detailed and combines road and color contours. I've tried the Garmin topos mapset and Ibycus Topos, but wasn't very impressed with the dataset details. My GPS is a Garmin Venture HC, which I've had for a whole 6 months <grin> and enjoying it very much. I've used GPSBabel 1.42 and WinGDB 3.63 to convert files back and forth (.gpx to .gdb and routes to tracks, etc). It's interesting to hear about the free versions instead of using Mapsource, but kinda used to it's quirks now.
