Default 2014 Hybrid - is the Touring worth it?

I am about to buy a new 2014 Hybrid Accord. I want the EX-L but frustrated that, for that price, I would still have to bring my own GPS into the car (a small deal, I admit, but frustrating, as I said).

My question is about the Touring (my wife thinks I am trying to talk myself into one).. Is it worth it? Clearly, paying an extra $2500+ for GPS is crazy, and the other features are nice but hardly game changers. Would the extra price of a Touring return in resale after 5 or 7 years? Iam curious what this group thinks.

The features between the Hybrid EX-L and Touring are not just the GPS. Touring adds to or replace the EX-L features with the following:
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition, FM Traffic and Interface Dial[13]
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)[14]
  • Illuminated Steering Wheel-Mounted Cruise, Audio, Phone, i-MID and Navigation Controls
  • Hard Disk Drive (HDD) including 16-GB Audio Memory[15]
  • LED Headlights with Auto-On/Off and Blue-Tinted Chrome Bezels
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • HomeLink® Remote System[11]

Can't tell you about resale differences, as this is the first Accord generation with a Touring level. Some people like the Touring due to the extras, like the LED headlights too.
