Default Should I get an Acura TSX with or without navigation?

I'm purchasing a certified pre owned 2006 Acura TSX. Should I buy this with or without navigation? I'm looking at 2 TSX's, one with about 40,000 miles with navigation and one without navigation with 17,000 miles. They are both roughly the same price. I've heard that the navigation screen (which also controls the radio) could possibly malfunction in the future and would be expensive to fix, and probably not covered by even an extended warranty. I have a garmin GPS already. Plus I would get an extra couple years out of the lower mileage car since I only drive about 12,000 miles per year. Then again, I imagine when it comes time to trade the car in, the car with navigation would be worth more money. I'm planning on driving the car for the next 8 years or so and probably put about 100k miles on it. I'm leaning towards the lower mileage TSX, but was hoping to get some advice. Thanks!

The one without navigation is the better buy.

I'm going to take the other course from my worthy colleague's answers. If you use a GPS, you will never find an outboard unit as good as the factory. And, as far as Acura is concerned, you wouldn't even come close to the end of its life if you drive 100,000 miles. As this car ages, the difference in the mileage will become negligible, but you will have a very fine GPS. I have never heard of them malfunctioning - I have 141,000 miles on my TL with GPS and it doesn't show any signs of wear and tear. If you rode in it, you would guess it has about 20,000 miles.

I would never trade my GPS for an outboard unit, we have one for my wife's car and we both seriously detest it. I recommend the GPS equipped car. It will be worth more at trade in too.
