Same here. I got too excited in getting the car, didn't realize that MyLink was only a $100. option that may actually be worth it. Plus learning about the entire car took a lot of time, and when I finally got to understand the MyLink, it was too late. They should have advertise it better saying that MyLink was their alternative to Ford/Microsoft's Sync.
I quickly dismissed the $100-200 options for stuff that I did not find useful like mats, cargo netting, ashtray, etc. Arg...I was about to run down to my local dealership and just buy it...but, it seems it has to be installed at the factory.
Thanks all for the clarity. I hope I will find someone posting on these forums if there will ever be an upgrade or comprable product.
