Is Tech Package worth it?

I'm about to buy my 2016 CX-5 GT and I am wondering if I should get the Tech Package.
Dealer is offering me what I consider a good deal ($2,400 off an extra $500 if I finance through Mazda), so was thinking about going for it.

    I think it depends on your particular needs. Would you rather have an in-dash NAV or can you use a garmin or cell phone for much less $$$? As for the Smart City Brake, that's a collision avoidance system that only operates at low speed. So do you do a lot of stop and go driving on city streets? Have you rearended anyone in the past?

    I think this package is about $1500. You also get better lighting, which again, depends on how much night driving you do in badly lit areas.

    IMO, no. it's $1,500 for LED lighting. The NAV I read people complain about, and my Wife and I both use our Samsung Note 4 Smartphones for Nav when we rarely need it. so IMO this package offers nothing but LED lights for $1,500. I'd of hoped the Grand Touring would of just included LED lighting. plus I think the Front LED kinda looks droopy eye-d. a little odd, not as cool as a lot of others like Lexus, BMW.
