Every copy of MS Streets & Trips and MS MapPoint for standard PCs has an 
export utility included that will create tiles of selected areas for 
Pocket Streets.  As long as you can run the Microsoft "ActiveSync" tool 
between the iPaq and a "real" computer, you can have all the maps you 
want on it.   (Streets & Trips which covers all of North America 
including Canada and Mexico at street level is 29.95 at Wal-Mart.  )
