If it's a smartphone you can cache Google Maps for the location you're 
going to and it doesn't matter whether or not you have cell reception as 
you'll always have GPS reception unless you're under a rock.  I use my 
Android phone GPS all the way from SF to Tahoe all the time and it works 
great.  I also did this when I was in Canada as I didn't have phone 
reception but I did have WiFi and was able to cache the areas I needed 
mapped.

I'm in Truckee (on the 80) - stop by and say hi :)
