Help me understand GPS devices for cars.

So, I don't own a car but I occasionally rent cars. I want to buy a portable GPS device so that I don't have to pay Hertz an extra fee to rent one of theirs. I can't figure out though, whether these devices charge monthly service fees or not? Ideally, I would just like to buy a device, turn it on, and have it give me directions whenever I need them.
If it matters, the device would be used in the US.
