Each country has 3 mobile operators and all of them offer mobile internet (though not all offer 4G). They also all operate on the same frequency meaning you can use the same phone everywhere (make sure your phone is operator unlocked though !) According to their respective Wikipedia pages, coverage seems to be quite good: 98% of populated territory (2010) ...

While I'm not in Tbilisi myself, my wife and children are at present in Georgia, having been in Tbilisi during the flood and the following week, although they now went to the summer house in the mountains.

I've done this at least twice and there's a new way now since I was last there. Basically there were two border crossings between Turkey and Georgia, but a third one has now opened too.

There is also an express train from Ganja to Baku leaving every other day (English version is incorrect) @9:00. I can't find information about the stops of the fast train to Tbilisi. ...

The Garmen GPS maps do not show detail in the regions such as Mtskheta where Kazbegi is located. I used and still use the free app maps.me in Mtskheta, Kakheti, Shida Kartli, Samtskhe-Javakheti, Imereti, Guria, and Adjara. To get this, you have to first download the app to your iPhone, then the Georgia specific map. It works offline, shows your location, ...

You can download Garmin Openstreetmap. In the drop-down list, just select Europe -> Georgia (they classifiy Georgia as Europe, even though it's mostly Asia). Note that it does not cover topographic information, so it is not enough for hiking.
