After a few years of Suzuki offering a portable nav unit in its SX4 hatchback, the comapny announced it would offer an integrated, in-dash system, however the U.S won't get the system.

Suzuki has decided to keep the portable unit in all U.S spec models but the rest of the world will receive an in-dash system. Suzuki has said that differing market strategies, along with the Garmin's portability and functionality, are the reasons the U.S won't be getting the built in unit anytime soon.

Suzuki strategically made this move because the technology package including the Garmin unit with traffic information and a year of nüLink! services costs $500. Other automakers in-dash systems can easily cost three times as much. That would work out to be nearly 10 percent of what the SX4 costs.

And still nothing in Candadian models, which cost way more to buy here as well even those the exchagne rate is similar...

I was not that impressed with navigation unit in the 2011 SX4 so I skipped it and kept a portable unit that I can take with me for walking navigation.
