The mirrorlink car navigation works ok but I found it to be dependent on the phone you are using. Found the LG G4 wasn't very good, sound poor, map update poor but Samsung Note 4 was much much better. Both running Android 6. Think the Samsung phones tend to be better at mirrorlink. It is expensive but every so often they have good offers. Try the car navigation, you get 7 days premium to try for free, after that it won't work (with mirrorlink) unfortunately.
I had Sygic gps navigation on the hu with the maps on a USB, in the second socket. It worked fine. Updated to RC8 and that stopped that as don't want to root with still being under warranty.
Just be careful loading too many apps onto hu. There's not masses of memory available. Downloading the Sygic GPS maps has to be done onto hu first and then moved onto usb. It took something like 650mb and I only just had enough free space.
