What GPS Software to buy

I just purchased GPS enabled Pocket PC (Windows Mobile 6) operating system. Its a E-Ten GloFiish X800. I am trying to figure out what GPS software to get for it. There are a lot of choices and prices vary wildly (Garmin, Delorme, CoPilot, Tom-Tom). I have been looking for reviews and web sites that compare the options but have not been able to find much. One MAJOR requirement is that it NOT rely on the Internet, I do not have data service with my phone and do not want it. The 3 main uses I will be using this GPS for are (and in order ).
1. Walking. My wife and I are training to walk a marathon, I would like a GPS to help with distance, speed, time, and logging our walks.
2. Turn by Turn navigation directions for the use in the car, and finally
3. Hiking off the road, in wilderness areas and for hunting.
Does any one know of a good site that reviews this type of software? Whats are some things I should look for? The things that I can think of (besides what I have outlined above), are How hard is it or how much does it cost for Map updates? Can you hear and understand the voice on the Pocket PC when its giving voice directions? How good are the directions? What is the support like?
