As I noted earlier, I'm a long-time "MacGPS Pro" user http://www.macgpspro.com. It's now up to sixty bucks, which ain't exactly "cheap," but it's not outrageous, either.
I really like paper maps, too, and also remember fondly when I could ramble into the Menlo Park store, and later the Wyoming State Geological Survey store on the U Wyo campus. Sigh... I bought a bunch of paper maps for our upcoming Swiss Alps trip, and the Swiss topo maps are gorgeous—truly works of art!
