I have just ordered a 60GB iPod (a step up from my three year old 3G one!) and along with getting videos ready to put on it, I want to be able to put the London Tube map on, (and a street map if that is possible,) to help my route planning. I've heard of a site called isubwaymaps.com but this doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know of any alternatives?

Can you not download any of the freely-available PDF versions from London Underground, convert them to an image and add them with iPhoto?

Or grab one of these (http://images.google.com/images?q=tube+map&hl=en&btnG=Search+Images) and do the same thing?

Yep, perfect. Can't think why i didn't think of that before! Any idea for the streetmap?

There are a ton of different city underground maps here (http://www.isubwaymaps.com/) iPod formatted and available for free download. The iSubwayMaps work perfectly - what version Ipod do you have? Read their FAQs for step-by-step iPod upload instructions.
