Driving throughout Europe

I've recently moved to Zurich and plan to do a lot of sightseeing.
I've bought a car (used car) and have already started traveling throughout Switzerland. My next step is to visit all the neighboring countries and I have a few questions.

1) Toll roads, I have the Switzerland sticker. Is there a sticker or electronic device I need to have to travel through Germany, France, Italy, Austria....
If so - where can I purchase these

2) What to keep in the car? What am I required to keep in the car at all times in all the previously mentioned countries?

3) At what point/date/weather-report do I need to have my snow tires (I know it's just now starting spring) on in each of the countries? I have a Subaru (all wheel drive - if that makes a difference)

4) Are there any regulations I should be aware of in each country - like, for example - I use my Phone as my GPS - is there any concern about me using my phone as a GPS - or how about mounting my phone to the window of the car.

I'm sure this is posted somewhere, I just figured some one else probably has had the same question and can point me in the proper direction.

Re: Driving throughout Europe

1.
this is always written when you cross the border. Harder to guess are ecological taxes in some of the cities.

2. and 4.:

http://ec.europa.eu/transport/road_s...d/index_en.htm

3. winter tyres:
I think the dates asre the same everywhere, but even outside of those dates you need winter equipment in the case of snowing or you need to stop i.e. it's your responsibility that your cars is safe on road

5., 6., 7., 8, ------- 00:
there are too many countries, too many rules that are changing, so just inform yourself before you go. We can fill you now ten pages just with basic info and part of it will be wrong in few months.
for everything else, google is your friend
