    Unfortunately, I don't think so...

    Google Earth 5.0 has a "Directions" option.. where you can map directions, then it will offer a "printable view".. if you click it, and it will link you to a Google Maps Printable View.

    Obviously the issue w/ both of those, is they require you to have Internet Access. As for something that is stored locally, not that I know of...

    openstreetmap.org is probably more of a competitor with Google maps than Streets & Trips, but it does give you the flexibility of downloading to your Garmin for international maps for free and in places that I haven't seen Garmin's MapSource cover.

    Like all free things free, the quality could be improved and regularly is.
