I bought this option in my GTP in 2003, and was so impressed I got it in my Territory in 2004 as well.
It's a damned expensive option, but if you regularly travel to, or live in, a large city or large unfamiliar regional centres, it's great - if you don't do these things and the money is a factor, I wouldn't bother.
One thing it also does, is show tourist attractions, points of interest, major hotels, fuel stations, hospitals and other civic services - not all these things are listed - as you would imagine, but many are.
It also solves the driver/navigator arguments.
One thing that you can't do - which annoys the hell out of me, is input an address whilst the car is in motion. This is obviously a safety mechanism to stop the driver "playing" with it when in motion, but your passenger could easily be doing this, but can't unless you pull over.
