You can buy 'em new for $10, and you wouldn't have to get a cell plan. Just use the Bluetooth to control the vehicle.

I find it silly that auto manufacturers still sell cars with standalone nav systems and wifi hotspots. They are inferior to what apps on a phone can provide, and come at a much greater expense. I think the company that provides nav for my Acura charges $200 for map updates.

Sure, some people don't want Google to know where they are, and there are great GPS units out there by Garmin and Tom Tom.
