Google Nexus One

all for 0$ with contract. It's not really negotiable, it's one of those 3. My father really likes the GPS on the Garmin, but the one question I have in regards to that is if the GPS requires an internet connection(like an iphone type GPS) or is this a stand alone GPS that doesn't require an internet connection?

Other than that, the motorolla seems too multimedia related for him, but who knows. Any suggestions to which is better and an answer to my above question?
I don't think the A50 has offline GPS, so yeah it would probably need a data plan. (You should double check)

Of the three phones, the Nexus One is the one that is the most well-rounded.

And there are third party GPS clients available on the Android Market that have offline maps.
