I will join the SUV driving ranks here in America.
Now, in typical fashion, it is time to optimize the choice.
- GPS Nav or no nav.
- Leather or not.
I think GPS is the toughest question. Usually the NAV system costs an extra couple of thousand. However, if Mr. T is riding shotgun with me… man it is totally worth it!
Anyways, the choices are as follows:
I like GPS and mapping. It sucks to get lost. It seems like a nobrainer to have this kind of system everywhere. The problem, is the cost. What is the fair price.
Buy it integrated – most expensive: $2500 – $2900
Buy an add-on: Tom-Tom Go. These are like $800
Buy an add-on embedded: Alpine or some other manufacturer. Didn’t check on how much these cost. I think this is a great option.
Wait for my phone to pull it off: Now that would be the best option. How are those location aware phones doing?
Seriously, though. Why hasn’t GPS become a commodity yet?
So, car purchase, almost there. 🙂
