Use the fuse that protects the size of wire you run to the outlets, up to the maximum capacity of the outlet. #14 wire=20 amp; #16=15 amp; #18=10 amp. (This is higher than house wiring, 'cuz the wire isn't wrapped in a 6" fiberglass insulation overcoat and won't heat up as much.)

I have a fuseblock that has seperate circuits for the GPS and radar. I can't recal of top of my head the exact fuses but both combined are probably less than 5amp. a 2amper would be enough for a gps.

I like to use the smallest fuse that will work for the connected equipment. For the devices you listed, I'd start with 1A and go up only if I had to.
