What's a powerful GPS with a nice big screen?

Even the very latest GARMIN units still seem to have the little 3-inch screens. This in an age where 7-inch and 10-inch touchscreen tablets are everywhere.
The GARMIN GPSMAP 62sc looks like it has a very solid antenna,
but I am disappointed by that tiny screen, powered by two little AA batteries.
I have a Samsung Galaxy TAB which has some neat abilities,
but as soon as it goes out of WiFi range, it goes a bit nuts. Even if I have told Google Maps to cache for offline use.
Endomondo Sports Tracker is fun for the first few minutes, but if you don't give them $4.99 immediately, you are plagued with adverts, bugginess, and basic workouts limited to 10 minutes.
The answer, I imagine, lies in buying a Galaxy S4 or the latest iPhone, with a data package and a two-year contract, but I do NOT have that kind of money. Who does!??
So, it's almost 2014. What's a powerful GPS with a nice big screen?
