WGS 84 is the standard for the Garmin maps and is definitely the datum for the AZ Topo.

I don't even know if it is possible to create a map with a different datum.  Why would you ask?  The settings of the displayed datum on a computer are gps do not matter.  You postion will still always be correct in respect to the map.
