A GPS, to be worth a damn, needs to be able to operate fully, without EVER needing a cell phone connection.
Then that's pretty much none of them. To transfer maps to any GPS that I own, you need an Internet connection. Which may or may not be a cell phone connection. I have the maps for most of California preloaded on my iPad the same way that I have them preloaded to my Magellan GPS unit, and in both cases it came in via the Internet (though the Magellan had to be hooked to my laptop to get the actual maps while the iPad sucked them down directly). I don't think you can even buy maps on disks anymore, that's so... 1990s.
