RE: [gpsstash] New Gov Maps.


I'll stick with free for now :) - I was contacted a while back by another
company who may be able to offer geocaching.com better map services for free
(in return for exposure). We'll see what happens.

Since most maps used by these big guys are based on government data, I may
end up doing something on my own too.

:)
