    Aftermarket navigation install on an 08?

    Hey guys, I am getting a pretty good deal on a base model 08 but the only thing holding me back is navigation/bluetooth capabilities. I don't like the look of stock cars without nab and I've been reading its not that easy to install an OEM system into a base model but has anyone done any aftermarket installations to a success? This is pretty much the only thing holding me back from buying but if I can find any info on navigation installation with pictures (very vague posts I've found on here with no pictures or anything) then I will proceed to purchase the car. Thanks guys

    Yes, will work with 08-2012. My shop is in Tampa if you want to come up for a day for us to do it. The whole kit runs $2499 installed. Otherwise we are working doing a oem conversion on my right now. If everything goes well with it I can get you a price on that.

    that looks like a nice system with some features the factory should have installed. I have the factory nav but would like the bluetooth, backup cam, and interested in what the radar detector feature is?

    Can you add those features on to the factory nav package? And be reasonably priced?

    I'm waiting on a callback on a discounted package from the manufacture since you already have the screen.

    The radar setup is a add on kit that is radar detector and laser jammer setup that can be controlled through the screen and alerts you through your car's speakers.

    +1 on that. Have NAV/HDD but no Bluetooth or backup cam.

    Laser JAMMER? This I need to know more about. How does it work and is it legal?
