Advice wanted on model of SatNav

Does anyone know a model of SatNav that is capable of utilising the "Travelling salesman algorithm", where a number of waypoints can be fed in from a spreadsheet (waypoint number then either post-code or coordinates)
Then the Satnav sorts the route into an optimum route for multi-drop delivery.
I'm aware there are a number of Windows programs and iPad Andriod Apps that can do the work by pre-processing the route, but I wanted a simple 'one box' solution
(mods, can move if not in the right section)

It could be 'one box' if you use an android device as a sat-nav.  Wink

Can do, but will the 'andriod' need a network connection to operate as a Sat-nav? I don't know!

Re: Advice wanted on model of SatNav

I'm currently using an 8" tablet with the tom-tom app, works better than my old tom-tom live xl (but doesn't do what you want) - I tether my phone's wi-fi for 'live services', the maps are all downloaded to the device so no heavy 3G data usage.
Perhaps this kind of thing is closer to your requirements: http://www.capitalstores.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/11145?gclid=CJa6n4aExrwCFdQPtAod4mAAaA
For further advice, maybe ask any delivery drivers what they use when you get your parcels delivered.
