I've done a very similar trip and to answer your questions.
Yes, GPS works great though in Italy I had nav tell me to make a left turn where there was no road or tell you to go the wrong way onto a one way, but overall it works fine and is really handy.
Insurance is provided for 2 weeks no charge but extra can be purchased, I seem to remember in 2 week increments. It's all handled very professionally and is great. I scratched my wheels in a tiny underground garage but they were fixed or replaced (I can't tell) and all the details are all taken care of.
Nice write up BTW.
