Default How hard and how much to retrofit a OEM NAV?

I am kind of mad that I did not get the nav. I wonder how hard and how much would be to get a new dash and a NAV unit. Any ideas?

There's a way to individually price options (MP3 player, wood vs metallic dash trim, dimming mirror, etc) from Honda on the web- I think through the owner link?

Hi Mitaka:

___I bet it would be in the $5,000 + range. The sum of the parts and installation would be a living nightmare on the wallet! It would be best to sell your non-NAVI and purchase an 06 with if you really feel that strongly about it.

___Good Luck

You could always try some junkyard scavanging and see if you can get a deal on the Navi parts from a wreck. But, would you know enough to be able to retrieve ALL the necessary parts for the retrofit? I wouldn't.

Another option, just get an aftermarket unit! It'll save you a lot of money, a lot of installation time, and a lot of headache.

There are several aftermarket ones that look pretty good. I think they range around $700 to $1,000 for decent units. Sam's Club had a Magellan (I think) for $750. www.gpsworldsupply.com has some inexpensive products. I purchased a factory refurbished Garmin E-Map for $115. I bought it three years ago, and have never had a problem with it. I still use it now, on my motorcycle.
