Best Phone for Real-estate?

I need a phone to help me rent apartments. The two features I'm most interested in are a good GPS system so I can find my way to and from different properties, and the ability to check and answer my gmail. A problem I've been having going through different reviews is that most just mention that the phone has GPS without talking about capabillities. I want to know if the GPS is worth while or if I should should get a Garmin and a phone with email. Being able to access craigslist and post a listing with photos would also be nice.

So what is the best phone for the job, that I could purchase relatively easily? Thanks!

Reposted for innovigno: iPhone

But I left out the link to his own site about his own business for creating real-estate sites. We don't like ads here, that's why.

"iPhone hands down. GPS works great, I have my gmail service synced up right now, and there are loads of real estate services and websites that have applications custom made for the phone. Plus, you have the full internet browser so you can post listings on sites like craigslist and what not, and I believe, you can even use photos you take on the phone!"

Consider a Nokia N95

Don't forget to look into how reliable the 3G service is where you will use the phone.

Another option besides the iPhone is the Nokia N95. It's a very capable little device. Here's a link to the Nokia nseries site-
