Which GPS set would that be.......should be quite a spiffy one, since it gives you a nice colour map overlay of your track route.
I use a fairly basic Garmin Etrex Venture, which, save for having a streetmap overlay, does everything I need it to do, gives me a trail to backtrack on, speed, distance covered, altitude, and gives me a better idea of where I am, even compare two routes to see which is shorter/faster.

I am using a Garmin eTrex Legend. What I did was just to overlay my tracklog onto the free Malaysia-Singapore GPS map. The image u see was a screen capture from my PC. You can get the MalSing map from the Malaysia-Singapore GPS Forum on MSN Since your Venture doesn't have mapping capability u can only use the map on a PC and load the tracklog or waypoint for PC screen viewing. The software to view the MalSing is MapEdit. I assume u already have the Garmin data cable. To get your tracks and waypoint you would need to get a Track & Waypoint manager. If u already have Mapsource then u already have the apps. For me I do not have Mapsource and so i use OziExplorer and others. All the apps i mentioned are FREE and can be found using your fav search engine.
