Karin here would be ideal, she can differentiate different chakra's, sensing/tracing kabuto out of the hundreds of different chakras could be easy for her...no other sensor thus far in manga has been shown to be able to do that though the thing is how well can you trust her? she was a known enemy combatant.
Naruto's sage mode is the closest to her ability Naruto was able to sense every one's chakra in konoha at Pain attack...he has another sense ability that in RS mode he hasn't had enough time to put that in practice...Kisame was just one situation how far it can reach, the distance it can cover will be clearer when he starts to relay on it IMO.

You mean he was in the center of the village, Which would make his current range half of Konoha's diameter.
http://www.narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/434/9 , but it doesn't matter, it's huge anyways.
Though the time limit makes it an annoying jutsu.
plus he had to stab himself with one of those rods to trace nagato.i don't think he is that strong of a sensory ninja,maybe him stabbing himself is the only way he would have tracked nagato....
Even Inoichi wasn't able to track Nagato due to his ability to change the frequency of his chakra and make it untraceable, and we can see how known Inoichi/talented he is. It's pretty good that Naruto was able to track the chakra back to its source, especially when Nagato was at such distance away. Even Karin may not have managed to do this.
Karin's still a more useful ninja to have around because not only can she sense chakra and hide hers for that surprise attack, but she can heal as well. A dangerous combo if you ask me. She's a great support on the battlefield.
Naruto doing better then Inoichi could have been due to him using Nagato's own transmitter to trace him. That could have help depending on how Naruto's sensor ability works.
It'll be interesting to see if Naruto employs that sensor ability again or relays on his new sensor ability.
I think he can use the combination of both now. It'd be pretty sweet, he can sense any enemies as well as predict traitors or someone that has killing intent. This would be a good way to avoid another Nagato as he could prevent his teammates from killing innocent people or prevent killing innocent people if he can react without killing in time. His ability to sense his surroundings can also help with that. It'd be a beastly combo, Sage 'n' Kyuubi mode.
Didn't Inoichi have/use Nagato's chakra rod as well?
Maybe Naruto could sense him b/c they were both Uzumaki's and children of destiny!?!? oOoOo
I always thought he used the chakra rod to sense where Nagato was, plain and simple.
Doesn't Nagato admit that's how he found him?
When Nagato later realizes Naruto purpsely got hit by his chakra rod he shot at him, Naruto was supposed to have been controlled by Nagato's chakra and rinnegan.
However, Naruto broke free from this with his Kyuubi/Sage mode combined.
My feeling is Naruto is a great sensor, but different than Karin.
Karin senses chakra from random people with great depth and detail, whereas Naruto can sense chakra from far away, but only when he searches for it.
Very different things there.
Prediction, Naruto will use Rikudo mode/Sage mode/Itachi's gift of Uchiha part of izanagi (the power has got to be insanely strong he gave Naruto due to Zetsu's comments about how "something must've happened to him before this fight" with Sasuke) to sense where Tobi is when he teleports, meaning he will know where he is going before he teleports and using the Ultimate world ending Rasengan that will kill every ninja in the world and create peace for whatever is left, possibly a fan and a piece of ramen.

I've not seen this anywhere in this forum, but an overview of kishimoto's interview at the Jump Fest is out at NF. According to it kishimoto said that shikamaru and choji (surprise,eh?) would be the ones blessed with his attention. However the real big news is he actually apologized for not doing the kakashi year. He said that he couldn't do it the way he planned (i bet he meant to kill tsunade and make kakashi hokage, but his rubbish editors didn't let him). HOWEVER he Will concentrate on kakashi and this time kakashi Shall play an important role...so it seems that kakashi year was merely pushed back, not cancelled.
