Please navigate me to a good car GPS for the USA!

I am an inexperienced driver, and I am about to be taking a number of long road-trips alone across the US this year. To aid me, I am looking for the best GPS that is reasonably priced. Can you recommend one for me?

I've never had a GPS before (or a car before!), so I'm not really sure what I should be looking for in terms of qualities or features. What are the differences between the models for sale? What sort of price should I expect, and is there some sort of annual fee? I don't have a smartphone, but might be prepared to buy a cheap one solely for GPS if it turned out to be the best option. I think I'd probably prefer an actual car GPS though. I anticipate traveling solely in the US, so I'm looking for one that is really reliable within America (although if it were to work in Europe also, that would be a plus). I have seen this question
, but I think my needs are a bit different, so I thought I'd ask the hive mind again! Recommendations about what *not* to buy are also welcome!
