Looking at 2 very similar second hand VW cars one has Sat Nav but no Park Assist t'other has Park Assist and no Sat Nav.

Is one worth more than the other or of more use ?

How does Park Assist work ?

I would suggest park assist - you can get any number of devices, including smartphones, that will do satnav, but I'm not aware of any third party gadget that will do park assist.

On any car (except a Smart Car or a Fiat 500) I'd go for park assist!

SatNav that is built in is hard (or rather, generally expensive) to update. I don't like any car with a big screen in because they reflect, and it nearly always means that everything is done via the screen (which you have to look at) rather than with actual knobs and buttons that you can use by feel when you are driving.

So I'd got for park assist if I had to choose one, but I'd probably look to get a car with neither and spend the money saved on something else smile
