Don't want to upset anyone, but the Garmin product does require a dataplan.

I cannot see how they would send that amount of information (map details etc) using the GPS network of satellites since the GPS message specification doesn't support this. Pretty much all you get from GPS is location and time. You won't get complex data for downloading maps etc.
