All too true. I suspect it will take a few years for the new maping data from the recent shuttle mission to work it's way into the consumer market, but it will, which is exciting. ut for now, the world maps are as acurate in scale as most location maps in publications. Of course, the collectors would still maintain their paper maps with accurate GPS readings for their own notes as that is more reliale by far. But it is possible that a PDA/GPS unit could aid in the field for quick notes. You would still need to write the info down manually, because PDAs are machines, afterall, and they will break down like all machines.

the city block with one of those units. <<
That would be a major milestone for my wife! ;-) She has a terrible sense of direction.
