Factory navigation/ cruise control worth it?

Im working on finding the right deal on a NV200. I think I have found it at a dealer about 265 miles from me. One is a 2013 sv model white with black bumpers. It has the tech package and all the steering wheel controls for 22,808.04 out the door with no DP. The other is a v model with stock radio and no steering wheel controls for 20,901.75 with no dp. Now thats a 1906.29 dollar difference. Other then that they are both the same van. Both will come with the Adrian steel package. For about 500-700 I can get the Pioneer app radio or a double din dvd player with navigation. Most of my work driving is in the city and nothing over 55. Keep in mind Im a new business. The car payment is only about 30 dollar difference. So I guess my question is, is the factory tech package worth it?

Hi, I believe there is more to the sv than you mentioned, power locks, keyless entry, cargo mat, cargo d-rings, extra 12v outlet in back, body coloured bumpers, wheels covers, etc.
It depends on what is important to you.
I order sv with tech package, haven't got it yet though!

It sounds like you are comparing an sv to an sv with tech package.

The only difference between the 2 are the tech pack, and cruise control. Bot have power locks and windows.

Sorry man I'm not much help... Our (canada) models must be different!

Sv vs S in canada=

Body color bumpers
Body color door handles and mirrors
Silver painted grille
6 d rings
Rear cargo floor mat
Keyless entry
Power door locks
Extra 12v outlet in rear
Security system with alarm
Wheel covers

I think that is all

Cruise control and wheel controls are standard up here!

Weird

Where are you from?
I guess you'll have to post that!

I believe the tech package in the US is an additional $950 on either the S or SV models.

The SV gives you body colored mirrors and door handles, chrome grille, cruise control with steering controls (Except for tech package which is separate and includes another set of buttons on steering wheel), wheel covers and a 12v outlet behind the center console. (pretty much useless if you have a partition.)

The $190 optional appearance package gives you painted bumpers, chrome grille and wheel covers over black 15" rims. This is only if you order the "S" model.

The Tech package includes a navigation unit with bluetooth handsfree phone, Nissan Connect, POI's by Google and a USB connection for your phone/iPod.


I had the dealer ditch the wheel covers and black rims on mine in favor of the plain silver wheels. I added chrome gorilla lug nuts and voila!, Looks much nicer in my opinion over plastic covers. There was no charge to me for the swap. Wheels are the same size either way.

Congratulations!
Either way, all they do on the bumpers is spray over the texture. It's bogus in my book. You could have a shop do the same thing for the same money if you wanted to. The gloss isn't as smooth as the remainder of the body.

I actually like the navigation unit. Fairly easy to use. One thing I don't like is the fact when you are driving, you can't add destinations manually on the screen. You need to use the voice command button on the steering wheel and go through voice prompted commands until you get what you want. That is my only gripe about the system.


Also, make sure they throw in the rubber floor mats. That crappy felt for carpet will not hold up more than a couple of weeks.

I've got no issues with it. Works fine with the windows up and even partly down on the highway. My customers have heard me fine so far. There are two volume controls on the radio. One for the speakerphone and another for the audio. They each work independently. It's a nice feature. I know there have been issues with the non-screened standard radio with the bluetooth. That is a different unit altogether.
