I only have a few more weeks to change the options on my new S80 T6. So far I have everything but the Navigation system. I understand it is one of the best offered by anyone but is it really worth the $2400? I welcome any opinions. I love to travel and so far have not had a problem with paper maps <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Thanx<P>Glen

The system isn't any good without the $500 DVD <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> I'll have to find one to play with.

In Germany, can't you get the RTI Nav System with TV Tuner as well? If so, I think that it is worth it for sure! I wish we had that option here in the U.S.<P>-Drew

Here you have to buy the Europe DVD and then the U.S. DVD when return to the states next year. <P>The TV Tuner is between the seats with the DVD for the rear passengers. It's not related to the Nav system.<P>Still trying to make up my mind......<P>Glen

you can get a top of the line hand held GPS that does the same thing for $400 and you'll be able the move it from car to car. I had to fly to San Diego on business and rent a car last month and I brought mine with me. Much more versitile solution. I even use it on my motorcycles.
