Its just so you can install the screen into your dashboard. I bought a 2012 base knowing I'd change everything and didn't care about sync. Saved money, have a way better radio, speakers, amps, nav and about to order my custom leather from Katzkin.
My 2013 Base does have SYNC though, and I actually do like the voice control of USB/Bluetooth Streaming, Directions, Services, etc. I intend to keep these features over the aftermarket ones.

There are new gateways coming out, namely the Kenwood/iDataLink Maestro that will integrate the Sync features into the actual headunit.

If my car did not have SYNC, it would be a different story. But I actually do like it, and would like to keep it.

That said, this is the first dash kit that's actually in a form I can swallow. I'd love to see something in the future with a detachable LCD which can place the screen higher.
