I'm just curious what the consensus is as to the value of the Tech Package option.
To me, $3750 seems a little high for what is listed. For example, navigation with map updates doesn't seem like it should be a big deal. Google makes a great free app for that in the Android Market - I mean, the "Google Play" store - already. Should be able to get that working for the Model S without too much trouble, no?
The power lift gate & xenon lamps are nice, as are the convenience lighting. Homelink? I guess, although I've never used it before.
But all that just doesn't add up to $3750 for me. I'm thinking maybe $2k would be more appropriate.
It's the one option I'm really waffling about. If I get it, it will be in anticipation of something being made available in the future to make it more in line with the current price tag. I don't want to exclude myself from any goodies down the road :)
