I ended up getting this, because it was pretty cheap and had a built-in battery. I will probably have AC much of the time, but this is small enough to have "just in case". If it works out well, I'll post back here.
Download the map image in compressed format from http://www.osmmaps.com/united-states.html. The file (usa_osm_29022012_gmapsupp.zip) that I downloaded on 30 March 2012 was 2.47GB.[/li][/list]

My budget is limited so I use the iPhone in two ways:
- For family members with an Apple mobile device, they track me on 'Find My Friends' app
- For others, I use Google Latitude and they can track me on smart phones and web sites
These apps are always on, and they do not add too much drain to battery life.
I'd have to agree with Raybo. If you aren't that pressed for time, take the 101 loop around Olympic Park. We did it in 2009 - journal here -> www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/tws. Have given considerable thought to doing this area again, and here's some of what I would change. From Fairhaven, consider stopping at Bogachiel and touring into the Hoh rain forest. Stay a day or two at Kalaloch. After Lake Quinault, consider going out towards Copalis before heading into Hoquiam and Aberdeen (no ferry across the mouth yet.). After that it's a pretty much a straight run to Oregon and the coast. To me the inland route in Washington is not appealing. There is the factor of rain which has a stronger presence on the WA coast. Best.
While I choose alu chainrings, don't go overboard with concern with "heavy"; you're talking about a couple ounces. Some mountain bike/touring cranksets have just two out of the three rings steel. Some prefer steel over alu for inner ring.
