Honestly, the mylink is cool but it's not worth the extra money. Don't base your decision off of it. The first week you think it's great. After that you get over it. I don't even use it anymore. I get into my 2011 and I enjoy it more because controlling the radio and all that is so much easier lol. And if you already have a smart phone then why pay for the mylink. It's essentially the same thing.
