    A newelectronx primo gps would probably give you the most features. you might want to consider it. I included the link of where i got the feature list from. You can basically look over the features here and the features of any other gps you are considering and make the decision from that. I have been using my newelectronx gps for almost a little over a year now and I have no problem with it. I have also recommend it to my friends and they love it. Actually, my friends have the newer one - which has a faster processor inside of it. Good luck on your purchase.

    I would suggest Garmin nüvi 265W/265WT 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Traffic

    *Bright 4.3-inch diagonal color touchscreen; 480 x 272 pixels, WQVGA TFT display with white backlight

    *Sleek, ultra-thin design fits easily in pocket

    *Preloaded with City Navigator North America NT

    *Supports Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free calling when paired with *Bluetooth-enabled cell phones

    *NOTE: Model number on the box is 265WT because the traffic receiver is included; however, the model number on the device itself is 265W as the "T" in 265WT refers to the additional component
