No .... I think that is gotten with NAV only (or maybe only on the 13's).... when they offered me the deal I thought that it might have that, because I hadn't driven one with the Moonroof/Bose pkg ... but it's the same as the base unit looks wise ... it just has 10 speakers, including a sub and an amp under the front seat.
It's not a custom $2000 system, but I drove in it for a few hours today, and to be honest ... it's better than I thought it was when I first picked it up.
We don't really stream music, and when we play an IPOD or something like that, we just use the aux in jack. I don't really need that kind of connectivity (texting and stuff) in the car, although I know some people really like that stuff. The standard factory bluetooth does work great though .... even the base stereo has factory bluetooth and all the steering wheel controls.
