Default GPS Map Software

I have a Garmin Etrex Legend gps and would like to purchase software for the unit. What is the best software for hunting, for this unit? I was either thinking National Geographic's TOPO! State series (PA edition) or Mapsource Topo East. I would like topo maps that include all roads and trails on State Game Lands and state forest land. I do know that the National Geographic map can not be downloaded on the gps but with a small screen on the unit I am nit sure what good it would be anyway. With this software not being cheap, I could use a heads up before purchasing.

Default RE: GPS Map Software

The only program you can download to the gps is Garmins program Mapsource (topo, highway, etc). I like the topo program because it gives you a reference point like mountains, old cemetary's, creeks, trails established in the last few years or older, etc. The graphics aren't that good, but the refernce points are handy. I hear Delorme makes good topo maps, but you can only download your gps waypoints and tracks "on top of" the Delorme generated maps. You can't download the delormes to the gps.
