Yes I am serious. I have used most of those systems and not just as a quick trial and they have all sucked compared to my new iDrive. The Infiniti Nav package is the best of that bunch but I still find iDrive more to my liking. It has taken a little work to learn the system but it was worth the effort. Mercedes (if they can actually deliver this system) looks like they are going to push the bar a little higher and as I said in my earlier post I expect us all to eventually benefit.
