Something we found absolutely incredible... the rino130 unit (could've been 
any big memory gps) has enough memory to store street maps of the _entire_ 
state of SC.  At our recent event in a town I've never been to, I was able 
to find the police station and see all the streets in the town.  Our comms 
trailer arrived about 45 minutes after me at which time we were able to 
print a map of the town to distribute to the troops so they'd know their way 
around.

they should develop the locations of all things that might be
of interest during an emergency (beforehand).  All APRS
software can do overlays so that it is trivial to overlay these
objects on maps as needed.   de WB4APR
