Yes - here are my map suggestions:

(1) Guia Roji products: Take along the "standard" size "Por Las Carreteras de Mexico" as well as the larger "Gran Atlas de Carreteras"

(2) Definitely Definitely Definitely have a "typical" highway map of Mexico in a visible tank bag or map holder. Something that you don't have to get out at a highway intersection.

(3) Optional: GPS. I have a Zumo plus Bicimapas. I typically use these for situational awareness in Mexico - not for my sole source of Navigation information. The latest version of Bicimapas, while not perfect, is miles ahead of the previous versions and excellent for orientation. It worked very well in all of the major cities I was in.

Edit: I just found out this morning that Bicimapas is doing a huge update for 2009 - information here:

Bicimapas 2009

(4) Get a large wall map of Mexico and some push pins for planning purposes. Read lots of Mexico ride reports and make friends with folks like Gustavo and Dan (DTop1), who are, like, gurus of Mexico.

Do tell where you are going. The Tricepilot Express is doing a Mexico '09 Indiana Jones and the Temples of the Yucatan Tour - watch for it.
