Who really knows what the answer is, but I do know this; it makes for a complete info-tainment package. Typically these are the kinds of things that I could care less about. I always buy my cars with Navigation and XM radio if available, but now that I have all the other features of Sync services, I think that has set a new standard in terms of minimal required equipment on my part.
it's also a 'distance' issue w/ sync not being avail. in canada.. I live right on the border and when i go into canada my sync works but only for the first 60k or so from the border so there is some 'bleed over' there.
