As it stands, I have Navigon on my iPhone 4 which is absolutely fantastic and did not cost me anywhere near what the option price of on screen NAV is with MFT.

True but I think the fact is that certain key features for the gps etc are not installed in the car, which helps them cut cost out per car, and thats why it isnt just a quick update. You can do without it to be honest lol, you dont want to get attached to gps, especially since they dont always work right.
