Wide Area Augmentation System   
Feature-wise, the basic and most standard thing to remember in a GPS is, your unit must contain, WAAS or the (Wide Area Augmentation System) this type of feature will help you increase the accuracy of your unit to map out your location and decided on a route, and another feature that you would want to have in your GPS is the Channel, since Global Positioning System runs on satellite signals, the more signals you are able to access the more accurate and reliable the information you will receive.

In addition to that, WAAS was intentionally essential for air navigation developed by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) United States Department of Transportation for the augmentation of GPS to be accurate and available.

Yes, the WAAS GPS system was originally developed for the FAA although any GPS receiver capable of receiving the signal can benefit from WAAS.
