I really think this is the way to go. I would love to find something
even simpler; a barebones little box that acts like a GSM modem with a
BT interface ... I don't even care if it has a keypad or a screen.
Unfortunately, all the cell providers in my area like to sell bundles,
don't have unlimited data-plans and gouge for data transfers. There
are roll-outs of Wimax starting but that emphasizes my point about not
building in a cellular technology that will be obsolete.

I currently have a BT GPS that works well with my ITs and I can put it
on the dashboard of my vehicle where it will get good reception. If I
want to use the upcoming European Galileo or the Russian GLONASS or
the Chinese Beidou system then I can buy a little BT transceiver for
those systems (maybe ... I have never tried).

That kind of modularity works really well and allows piece-wise
replacement and mixing-matching of components if things stop working
or infrastructure need/provision changes.

I think the above also addresses John Holmblad's comments that came in
after I started this email.
