At first I thought the sprawl of white streets on the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan navigation system was a bit intimidating. But once I actually engaged the system and it gave me directions, it was a different story. The level of detail was phenomenal -- from the arrows directing you to the lanes you should be driving in to the actual pictures of the signs on the highway. I loved it!
Especially since I'm directionally challenged on my best of days.
Even better? This Garmin-based navigation system is a part of a $695 media center package. Most nav systems cost more than $1K.
Then again, the whole Dodge Grand Caravan is a value proposition. Base price is $28,695. While the test car added a bevy of options (including heated front seats, heated steering wheel, Bluetooth streaming audio, rear-seat entertainment, heated second row seats and a premium Infinity audio system), the final MSRP still rang in under $35K at $34,150.
