Don't know if this is old news, but I recently stumbled on a SOTA map project 
that provides a nice tool for rovers and portables. Shows terrain map with 
optional Maidenhead grid overlay; contour lines appear at the usual zoom levels 
for Google maps.

I pull and zoom the map to my desired area, then go to the "Grids" pulldown 
menu overlaid on the top edge of the map, and click the "Display grid" checkbox 
with the "locator grid" radio button checked (by default).
