I really do like the camera in the EX-L. The fact that it is integrated into the MID is very nice. I haven't loooked, but I think that integration would be a requirement for me. Another display like that would look a bit funky. As for GPS, there are models out there with every bit of the functionality of the in-built NAV and more. For the GPS I actually think it is an advantage NOT to be in-built, as I can carry the unit with me outside the car (navigation on foot) as well as move it to another car. Units have all the bells and whistles of the latest technology AND can be replaced with updated technologies for a fraction of the cost of the inbuilt NAV. IMHO Garmin is the bomb... they have models that are basic to leading edge (including voice recognition driven input). The only downside is having the cord hanging on the dash, but since we only use the GPS for a few destinationa a month, it is easily positioned for only those trips. My 2 cents.....

IMHO other high end stuffs like NAV and RES will become obsolete sooner than you think (no offending to high end trim owners;)). If you plan to keep your Ody for 3 years or more, I don't think you want those built-in.
I agree with that (again no offense). For the price of these options, you can get equal or better technology in portable GPS and something like the IPAD or similar multi-functional entertainment devices. Heck, you could buy an IPAD for he whole family for the cost....
