Well keep in mind that the MyLink in the Sonic and Spark will not offer on board navigation that's built into the unit. There will be an app available for MyLink that will provide nav but it will have to be routed through your smartphone. That means it will use your smartphone's data plan.

It's the same as Pandora. You can access it through MyLink but your smartphone is the data conduit for the app.

It's great if you have unlimited data but it can be a pain if you're in an area where you can't get phone recepetion.

The trend began a year or two ago to "not bother" including a CD player in automobiles. CDs are 30 year old technology and becoming seen as stodgy to USB-era shoppers.

Which is very similar to Ford's Sync. I personally do not want to pay $20 a month to OnStar when I already have unlimited data on my phone.

Smart to kill the CD/DVDs. I use my iPhone to stream radio and play files 90% of the time. Rarely use the free Sirius/XM, because the compression makes it sound like ass.

Envy the mirror.

I'll reserve judgement on the wheels until I see them in person. Mylink seems more of a distraction to me than anything. I know there is a *Do not operate certain features while vehicle is moving* clause, but that's like telling a pubescent boy not to play with his willy. I don't understand how this is anymore dangerous than a cell phone on speaker in the cup holder. A shame they did away with the CD player, but it's totally understandable. I don't wear skinny jeans, so I rather enjoy popping in my worn copies of Fush Yu Mang and Blue Skies and Broken Hearts.

the wheels look cheap and the mirror does too. like someone said, fingerprint galore. can do without the my link and the shifter is ok. just glad they are making the "2010 model more distinguished.

Personally, I'm glad I got a 2012, don't like that mylink at all.

I really think the Mylink stands too far out from the dash. I don't like that...

Anyone know if the Nav unit is functional while the car is moving? I'm suspecting not, as my sister-in-law just purchased a new GMC SUV with Nav. And while the truck is moving, you cannot search or use the NAV.

I can see the reason (ie: to keep the driver from using it), but it's a major PIA, and you should be able to bypass the limitation if someone is in the passenger seat. With the Garmin, my wife can easily pull it off the mount and search for whatever we are wanting to do. I don't want to spend the extra money on a built in unit with such operation. It will just annoy me, and piss me off.

Im pretty sure that lockout will get hacked.

I had no idea they did this....the only Nav I've ever had is a Pioneer unit in my truck....You mean you can't scroll (zoom in or out) or anything while in motion with the map ?

What a pain that would be...

Kind of defeats the whole purpose of Navigation if you can't use it while your trying to figure out where to go....lol.

I knew you couldn't watch a movie or anything like that...but didn't know this.

Safety issue, like trying to read a roadmap while driving. you should pull over to look over the map.

That display looks better than I had imagined it, but still looks like it was fitted there but doesn't fit too well with the design, I'm happy with the '10 and really don't need more distractions. Unless its for the backup camera I wouldn't get that option (if it is one, I'd rather take the classic sleek but functional design)
