Escort Radar Detector/GPS Mash-up the Passport iQ
Escort has mashed up the RADAR detector and the GPS for their latest product, the Passport iQ. not only will it get you from here to there, but it will also detect radar and laser speed traps. The Passport iQ also comes equipped with a trial subscription to their Defender database of known speed traps and speed cameras here in the US.
The 5-inch screen is a nice size with some good basic GPS features like NAVTEQ maps and turn by turn voice guided directions and a lane assist feature. I am pretty sure that the radar and laser detection is the best available; not sure the GPS is though...
Coming in at $649 list, this one will set you back more than that first speeding ticket, but will hopefully prevent you from getting any in the future.

OUCH! $650 AND you have to subscribe to a service for full functionality... also, it's an unknown navigator, would have been nicer to license existing technology from one of the big manufacturers. Not to be nitpicky, too, but for that price there should be free traffic, possibly 3G modem integrated, and whoever designed that bezel should go intern at Apple for a few years, and then go back to designing.
