It looks like these two Garmin systems use a linux OS.
Both these units are stand alone Sat Nav systems & I do not think the will export any data to a pc, if that's what you want to do.
In my opinion Garmin are the best Sat Nav systems, not the cheapest but the simplest to use & have good after sales support, unlike TomTom.
For advice on Sat Navs I would suggest you post questions on a Sat Nav forum.
If you want a linux ap to display GPS data & give directions, this is supposed to work on linux

Also GPSdrive works on linux.

Hope this is of help.
