I'm reading there's no Nav option which kind of bothers me a bit. The phone has to be used and the system isn't wireless. Yes, using Google is better but I like the look of Nav on the dash and hate dealing with wires.

You will see a Nav map , it will be on the screen from your plugged in smart phone. Really simple. I like the waze app for navigation, it will let you know about any road traffic ahead of you. Easy

Also, just to add, the wireless systems are often laggy, glitchy and disconnect randomly. Some are better than others, but there's no denying the reliability and cost savings in this setup.

Lincoln will happily sell any of you guys/gals a beautiful Corsair if you want a compact luxury vehicle. This isn't it.

The same reason they don't offer a CD player. Because most people use their phones, and it saves money when the goal was to produce a low-price vehicle.
Especially since Google maps includes the ability to download maps in advance in case the signal is lost.

I consider that a definite upgrade from the usb downloaded mapping on my 2017 Toyota that's always just a little bit out of date.

Biggest issue I have had with plugging a phone in, is the port wears out on your phone. Otherwise I don't mind plugging my phone in.
I just don't charge as much at home or work so I don't worry about over charging or wearing out the port.

For those still on the fence, Apple Carplay and Android Auto are superior experiences to using Sync 3 or whatever, not just in regards to maps. I listen to podcasts on Overcast and music on Apple Music and using the screen versus the phone is so much better. I feel that the people who complain about issues like above just haven't used Carplay/AA to its full potential.
