Default waiting list for 2004 TL w/ NAVI?

Hey all. I'm in SoCal and I put a deposit on a 2004 Acura TL with navigation
earlier this month. It seems they are totally out of a specific computer
chip needed to run the navi and it will take about 10 weeks to arrive. Does
anyone else around the nation have this problem?

For kicks, it's got dark gray metallic exterior, black leather interior,
manual transmission... I'm selling my 02 Accord EX V6 coupe for this.

I was lucky enough to get mine ordered and delivered in December
before the shortage got really intense. I hear that the current
issue is indeed the supplier of the Navi parts can't keep up with
the demand. More precisely, Acura -- based on previous years
sales -- underestimated the sale of TL's with the Navi. GPS
sales used to run about 24% (if I remember correctly) and with
the '04's, it's more like 40 something percent.

The car (and the Navi) is worth the wait!

I have been to 3 Acura dealers localy here in southern california
Orange County, they have an ample supply of TL's with Navi, and are
selling at window sticker or a little under..
