New Google Maps for Pocket PC and Palm OS (Treo)

Pretty slick. Just installed it and can't wait to try it tomorrow with my GPS receiver.

Only downside is that it requires an internet connection. On the plus side though it can do routing to a destination and also displays traffic (haven't got a chance to try that out yet).

All you need is Bluetooth and a GPS receiver. Very few phones have built in Bluetooth but it's easy enough to add on. I'm going to try and play with mine tomorrow and see how well it works out.

I still think that Windows Live Search does a better job. You can get it here:
