Of course: hard-drive = additional failure point

So, maybe not necessarily "better"....

Haven't really seen anything about updates to the map source either, as compared to my old 2007 5er, where there was an ad/week to buy a new DVD....
I wouldn't call the hard drive an additional failure point, just a substitution. Your navigation could just as easily stop reading your disks .

The HD screen alone is worth it to me.
