This is not an apple to apple application. Both serve different markets.
The HcX is a handheld unit allowing tracking while the 20x is for use to link to PDA/Lappy.
To answer your question as stated, the HcX is the better unit.

You don't need GMPC to view maps offline. Mapsource will do. You can even try out
routing etc. If you have not downloaded Masource CLICK ---> HERE to find
out how.

Using GMPC, he won't see the latest v2.30 map. Use mapsource, he can download the v2.30
locked Mapsource view only map.

For any unlocked map you can copy to Garminmobilepc folder as gmapsupp.img to view, but you have to drag to the location if no satellite connection.
In this case the Jan08(2.15) from download section is usable viewtopic.php?f=26&t=23

But for locked map, e.g. the latest 2.30 generated from GM-MySin.exe, you cant view
