Swap radio/cd for radio/cd/sat nav

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if I can swap the standard radio/cd player in my 2009 Avensis for the radio/cd/sat nav unit out of a similar Avensis ? Are there any major wiring mods to be done.

imho the sat nav isnt worth the hassle due to its age you can get a nice aftermarket alpine or pioneer stereo for similar money with more up to date features (not sat nav)

I don't think I have use a CD in-car for 10 plus years when you can get 10 albums on a 4gb USB stick

I agree with Bob regarding the amount of work to replace CD/radio with the nav unit. I thought about it, but when you see this following link, you will look for an easier option -  

As bob stated, the navigation will be piratically out of date. I use my phone via a bluetooth/USB adapter, so can get voice directions and stream music, as well as take calls. The original bluetooth only supports voice calls and depending on the phone, voice directions. Here are my posts on my upgrades -  

 

You can go my route or the android unit with suitable adapter cables suggested by Bob.
