Last I looked, Nav and streaming on phones requires a cell data connection. While the cell providers have been expanding their networks, they tend to focus on large cities, not the middle of nowhere.
The built-in NAV just requires a decent "view" of the GPS satellites. Plus, I find that they are more accurate than the cell phone GPS.
The one benefit of cell Nav is that you have access to the most current maps.
If I understand the Hyundai system correctly....
You can use Bluetooth, but you can also plug in your phone to both charge and stream data/music. Streaming through a USB/Lightning connector would give you the same quality as using the 'line in' connector OR having MP3s on a hard drive (like my 2012 430N).
Music streaming? I guess, but I keep around 4.5GB of music on my phone, no need for me to stream.
Nav? I had issues with my Nexus S until I stripped the stupid NFC antenna off the back case panel. Ever since then I've never had problems with my cell phones receiving a GPS signal. With Google Maps you can pre-save a map if you know you will be out of cell coverage. Which is better than not being able to update your maps at all (Garmin 2014.40 was the last version that works on the 430N radio unless Chrysler releases a firmware update, but I'm not holding my breath....)
Satellite? Bah! That's like 96kbps or less. Worse quality than most MP3s (I have most of mine at 220kbps or better). Low quality Bluetooth streams are 220kbps, high quality is 328kbps.
