If you drive triple digits, probably the Uniden R series is needed. If you are PSL + 20 or less (like me) the DFR series will probably be enough. My regular unit is a DFR7 and I like it. Certainly go for GPS equipped units IMO. Welcome!
I'm feeling you're pain. Having had a Rogue (pretty awful) and other Nissan products as rentals none impressed me much. The Maxima was the best, but I just couldn't get past the tin can clank of the doors and trunk lid. Good luck man...
LOL like google taking me to the freeway whenever it can, miles out of the way!
And I gave up on Garmin. Again seems to always lag far too much. I didn't appreciate missing exits because of delayed info. LOL!
