In Reply to: Re: Nav Question... posted by AC on July 08, 2000 at 13:02:16:

When you say the "NAV System," do you mean the unit (radio & screen) itself, or the actual "system?" The stock radio is the same size as the NAV w/the radio, so I almost positive the unit itself would make a perfect fit.

If you're talking about the NAV "System" itself (CD player & whatever else...not the screen/radio), and it's integrated into the dashboard, don't you think it is possible to install all that stuff where it is installed on a car produced with a NAV??? What all does the NAV "System" consist of anyway??? I don't quite understand how it couldn't fit, since everything is the same size (as far as the radio/nav combination & the stock radio itself).

If I had the opportunity, I would have ordered a vehicle with the NAV (absolutely no doubt!), but I purchased my car from the lot, because allocations were limited to Steps at all the dealerships around here, and I had to have a 5-speed.


SS: Actually the NAV system is integrated into the dash so I would think it close to impossible to swap the unit. Sorry, and I hate to pour salt on the wound as the Nav is a: very useful and b: really cool! I'll never buy another new car without one!
