Somebody please help me better understand the LCD screen. I'm talking about the LCD screen in the center of the dashboard (not the LCD screen directly behind the steering wheel).

1) It's not a touch screen, right?
2) Is it standard in ALL CLA250's, regardless whether you get Nav or not? Every CLA has it, right?
3) Is the size for the standard screen to be 5.6" and for the nav screen it is 7". I thought I read that somewhere.
4) So if the nav screen is bigger, I'm assuming all the other graphic functions take advantage of the larger size too, right? I'm thinking it might be nice to get the nav screen just for that reason, even if I never use the nav program.

Argh, gotta love today's cars with all their gizmos and gadgets....

1. No touch screen
2. Yes
3. Standard is 5.8" with a thicker surrounding bezel
4. Not sure if you can see more or it's the same resolution but bigger.

The screen def looks better in the 7" size. Some say that the screen looks out of place as it is just simply placed on the dash, but I believe it looks pretty kool.

I read somewhere that my smartphone navi system could work with that screen without necessarily purchasing the navi option from MB. Does anybody know about that or is the navi option a must if I want to see it on the screen?
Also, will it be difficult to get the navi option on the first wave of vehicles? I was looking at BMW 320i's and the dealer told me almost none of them come with Navi option (it is much more usual on the 5 series). not sure if the CLA 250 will be coming with Navi option...
