To clarify... do you need roads? are you hiking and need terrain? Are you fishing?

One of my fav options? Google Maps on my phone (blackberry). In addition to routes, you can lookup additional information like business hours.

I use Google Maps too, but you can get yourself in a lot of trouble if you don't have cell coverage wherever you go.

 

Also the data connections are oftentimes less reliable than a proper GPS, so you may find yourself in the middle of nowhere and no data signal and no Google.

 

What I typically do is rent the GPS with my rental car.  That way, I know for sure it will work.

 

I'm not that familiar with GPS brands, but I have used Garmin and they were pretty good.

 

Also, some car rentals in Europe already have navigation in the car.
