We have a 2006 EX-L Odyssey with NAV and RES. From our experience, an aftermarket GPS is the way to go. They are much more accurate, can be updated online for free, etc. Our Odyssey's NAV has an older source disk (2005) and many neighborhoods are not listed. The new source disk would cost more than a nice Garmin.
We are buying a Pilot and really like the Bluetooth and the Auto Liftgate on the Touring. Once again, we added the Bluetooth from Best Buy to our Odyssey aftermarket for $250 and skipped the power liftgate. As scarce as the Tourings are, and with the Honda website featuring 2010s already, it should be a great time to get an EX-L 2009 for $6000+ off MSRP.
Look for the interest rates to go down in June or July to move the excess 2009 Pilots.
By the way, I have a loaded Mazda CX-9 and the NAV is just not as good as the portable ones my friends have. They are super accurate. Garmin and Tom Tom

Thanks for the info. Are you getting an EXL or touring? Also... how do you like your cx9... I am going to test drive one before being firm on the pilot. I have always owned Honda's so I am a little hesitant to go to Mazda. Hmmm... isn't June tomorrow?

They only thing I do not like on the 09 is the cheap plastic on the dash, and the quality of the interior seems to have dropped quite a bit.

I have to agree with you on the dash...does anyone know if they changed that in the 10's? I am also curious about the colors... didn't care too much for the 09 colors except for white (we are in AZ), which of course I can't find on the touring. Still going back and forth between 09 and 10 as well as EXL and touring.

I couldn't find any so far in Northern California... if you get to know of any dealer that has 2010 Touring inventory, let me know.

getting the EX-L. The extras on the touring just don't substantiate the cost.
I like my CX-9 (touring model), it drives great, and has had no problems, but I want more of a truck/suv feel and we love our Honda Odyssey.
Just waiting on rates to drop or a bigger incentive.
