    I like maps as a supplement to my GPS, but maps, like a GPS are only as good as the detail they contain.

    I had to lead some lost travelers through the back roads they were trying to navigate by map this summer. I had much better maps on my GPS and was able to get them back to the highway they were trying to find. I knew exactly where I was and which of the many confusing side roads I needed to take thanks to my GPS. To carry the paper maps of sufficient detail for long tours can require a lot of precious packing space and are not always convenient to refer to while moving.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    It says it uses "FUF" technology... as in vaporware?

    "FUF" as in Fold, Un-Fold?

    What's "vaporware"? Is that kind of like a "Dutch Oven"?
