"Nice to have" is a pejorative that could be applied to any of the new (or even old gizmos) we have. G1000, GNS units, Aspen, Foreflight, ADS-B, autopilots (any model) are some obvious examples. Pilots have for decades (and still) operate without any of these particular technologies.
Anything that legitimately simplifies what can be a stressful environment adds significantly to your likelihood of successful completion of the current mission.
