If you guys want some free topo maps that will load into MapSource check these out:

I've got two loaded that seem pretty nice:

Arkansas Topo 24k+
http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/137/

Arkansas Contour 20ft Overlay
http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/370/

After installing you will see a pulldown in MapSource where you can change maps. Kind of nice to see what the topos look like for all of these GPXs.

I think the overlay can be used on a gps in conjunction with a base street map. That way the topo will be overlaid. The first one, the Arkansas Topo 24k+, is nice in MapSource, but when I used it on my Nuvi at SLAP last year it was too much information unless I really zoomed in.

Anyway, I thought I'd throw this out there since it's a pretty cool freebie.
