Default 13 vs 14 vs 15, differences?

I realize the differences between the 13, 14 and 15 are relatively minor but is there a list of them somewhere? Didn't see it in the FAQ section.

Thanks

The 15 has the new gen nav system, I don't believe there is any difference between the 13 and 14

The navigation system is a pretty big difference. I don't know that I would say it's better, having had both, but it's different. Has a different interface, and a lot of new functionality, birds eye view, speed limits, better voice recognition that is marginally less terrible.

Do all models have the reverse dynamic predicted path lines or is that only the 15?

I believe only the 15 has dynamic reverse lines in the camera.

I had a 2013 GS, so I have had both navigation systems...that feature doesn't really do anything for me just FYI...

I like the dynamic lines when I'm parallel parking (which I rarely do anymore).

So what are the differences with the nav software? Is it just the new features to connect remotely via your phone or is there more to it?

Debating CPO vs new (13 vs 15). Not really seeing much reason to justify the cost but want to make sure I know the real differences first.

You get the Enform app which is very cool. Remote start, locking, status check I like a lot. I've never renewed enform before after the trial but I will this time. The nav system gets you bird's eye map view, the new nav software has free HD Radio traffic vs subscription traffic in the 13 & 14 system, the new system has speed limits showing, you get Siri Eyes Free on the 14 also I think, but not the 13. If you're an iPhone user its very cool. The interface I actually prefer somewhat on the 2013 system.

I'm a new car person and I lease, so the new car will always be my choice, but really they are almost identical.
