I use linux/etrex for my business, particularly with war-driving. I use Kismet 
for mapping out where I have been, and with it, Microsoft's mapping site. 

Kismet at www.kismetwireless.net
Microsoft at www.mapblast.com (note, the map is pulled down by gpsmap, part of 
the kismet package rather than by hand)
Example of what can be achieved at http://www.lgeezer.net/map.png
map covers North London: Regents Park to the East End and north to just shy of 
Alexandra Palace.
