Something that I recently just got was onxmaps for my iphone. Shows you were you are at and also allows you to see property owners, boundary lines, hiking trails, state parks, etc. Lots of cool stuff. They are also a sponsor on here.
I have one of those purple lizard maps. They can be put in your pack, they are pretty neat and show state forests, streams, terrain and other cool stuff. The material they are made of is better than average paper. Might be worth a look for you.
