It's not the money, it's that I don't want to have to deal with a touch screen. All else aside, they can either not respond at all to my fingers, or over-react, frantically doing dozens of things in response to one touch.

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...
Until you happen to be someplace where there's no cell service :-)

Though I think that nav systems and wifi in cars are both silly, and one of the reasons I hope my current vehicles last forever.
