Check it out,
It can load your GPS track files, download topo layer for that trek or an road layer.
Theres a Windows Version and a Linux version.
IT can be used with a GPS receiver and log your treks on a laptop too.
It downloads the map tiles and saves them for use off-line could be handy for those that carry a netbook, you can have USGS terraserver topo reliefs along.
At one time it was downloading google maps too, but I think they removed it because it violated Googles terms of service.
ITs free too, but as with all the open soruce software, if you like it make a donation to the developers.
Topo Layer, Terra Server
Open Source Street Map.
Another Open Format streats, it has some trails listed too.
Google Satalite Photos under the trail.

Google Earth GPS Howto (still a work in progress) use USGS TOPO Maps to layout trails.

Sweet, thanks for the link!
My travel netbook just happens to dual-boot XP and Ubuntu 9. I prefer to spend my life in *NIX. This might be a good tool for my digital nomadic lifestyle.
