I just recently checked out a Acura CL Type-S with the NAV system. I must say, the NAV system was pretty cool. It is so 21st century! You really don't need a map. It will even tell you aprox. how far you need to go before turning. And if you miss the turn, it will calculate new directions for you within 10-15 sec. I might consider waiting for 2002 model year just to have it. I wonder how they will implement it b/c the top dash screen on the European model is just too far away for a touch screen. Will they replace the current stereo system with an intergrated NAV/stereo touch screen system? If so, next year's model will have a totally different interior look compare to this year.
