I used to have many paper maps but I haven't seen them in ages. I honestly don't know where then are. But I'm an AAA member so I can order any maps I may ever need overnight. For now GPS and Google Maps are getting the job done quite well.

More USGS Quadrangles than I know what to do with.

Have you ever had your GPS die when you were in the middle of who knows where?

Its one thing following a map. It's another figuring out where you are if you weren't following along.

Still have some maps from the '90s in my car. Wouldn't trust them at this point.

My kids have a toy treasure map - I think that counts.

I keep a map book of the metro area in my work truck for places that GPS can't find.

Atlas plus individual maps of all the states around Illinois, all in my car.

Hiking maps. Where no GPS can help you.

I got a map of San Francisco when I was there with the MUNI routes on it. Much more helpful than Google Maps, which told us to take Marin Transit.

I have never used a paper map to get anywhere. Although I did take geography in high school.

I think there are a few stuck in the back seat of the car... Maybe. I'm not really sure. We haven't used a paper map in years.

My 6yr was in a gas station and picked up a map, she asked what it was. When I told her, she said, why would anyone buy it when you can't even zoom in to see what you want to look at, and it doesn't even tell you directions.

Yes I have a map of the nudist park. I've only ever left when I was drunk, and I got thrown- literally thrown- in jail.

I drive all over for work & despite having GPS & phone I still have city maps-overkill but I like knowing they are there.

Aviation sectionals, road atlases, and some surplus maps from old land nav exercises hanging in my room for decoration. I never used an electronic device to navigate anywhere and I have never gotten lost in my life.

I have an Atlas and an old Texas road map from 1976. It's crazy how much different the state has changed since 1976

Quite a few, the one I used most recently was my trail map for the runs at Timberline this weekend while snowboarding.

I spilled coffee on the us atlas in my car a couple months ago. Threw it away a doubt I will replace it.

A lot. I have 7.5-minute quadrangle topo maps for the whole area, plus a collection of maps detailing specific trails, the Gazeteer for the state and a few US road atlases. GPSs are OK, but maps work just as well without signals or batteries.

I love maps. GPS is great but for learning the overall layout of an area, nothing beats a good map.
