The advantage with the new system is that they do not need to re-program the system, the down side is that the USB drive uses the USB port, so you can't use it for your ipod or phone.
Exactly...CIC systems still have the maps loaded.

Yes, but only the center console port takes the maps, and only the center console port can accept an iphone/ipod. You can't use both.
