I am a fedex contractor and I am looking into buying a few GPS navigation units for my trucks. I have been doing a little research but haven't quite found what I am looking for.
I will list some must have and some would like to have features.

Must have:
multi-point destination (preferably more than just 20, more like 100 since I do as many as 120 different addresses in one day.)
auto sorte or auto route
(so that I can know the best route and which stop to go to next, sorting for all 100 stops.)

and any other info u got
thanks

Take a look at the Garmin website. https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=133 Next, go to the Feature finder and check Multiple Stop Routing. I would also suggest that you consider Lifetime Map Updates. That suddenly narrows your choices to the following seven Garmin units:


Garmin Nüvi 3790LMT

Garmin Nüvi 3760LMT

Garmin Nüvi 2360LMT

Garmin Nüvi 2350LMT

Garmin Nüvi 2300LM

Garmin Nüvi 1490LMT

Garmin Nüvi 1450LMT

Beyond that you can see if any there are nay other compelling features.

Sounds like the Traveling salesman problem. I don't think you can just fill a gps with waypoints and have it calculate a best route.

Garmin GPS units can only handle 50 waypoints for an indirect route, thats a route that follows the road.

120 adresses a day?? when do you sleep?
