2013 Touch Screen Display

Hey, wanted to get some responses to the touch screen displays. I have read that they have been freezing and messing up as well as when the top is down or sun is on it, the screen can't be seen. Let me know if it is worth the extra money.

Thanks

I have read that the quality has gone down on the display unit and the navigation maps somewhere in the 2013 model year. The sound output from the stock head units is disappointing, too. Better to go aftermarket.

Mine hasn't had any problems, but in direct sun it is tough to see. The navigation works very well. The stereo puts out good sound by my standards, but a lot of people seem to be disappointed. I have a 430N in mine.

A lot of people are saying the display quality has gone down on the 430N because of the new color scheme they implemented with the latest firmware put on the 2013 models. The 730N looks the same as it has since 2007, which I'm happy with. I have the 730N in mine and I'm very happy with it, as I was with the older 730N I had in my 08.
