I would use http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/ - world-wide coverage in bite-sized chunks, GPS and Mapsource versions, routable (as far as any OSM is), new bike option (which I haven't tried).   As I write, the map is dated 7th August and it's refreshed about once per month I think, which would make the actual data about 6 weeks old at worst.
It's not dark yet but it's getting there.

I'm still using Andy Gates' Munky Map - hasn't been updated for a while but the coverage is good enough for me.

Suppose I should consider an updated equivalent at some stage if such a thing exists.

Yes, I'm also on a several years old version of the Munky Map.  I should go in search of something better.  I've also got a bit of random California, that I hunted down when in Berkeley, so I had roads when I was there!
Actually, it is rocket science.
