Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007 Discussion, quick question about factory nav unit in Cadillac CTS Coupe, Sport Sedan and Sport Wagon Forums; Im selling my factory nav unit and the potential buyer will only buy if he knows its xm compatible .So ...
Im selling my factory nav unit and the potential buyer will only buy if he knows its xm compatible .So long story short I just need to know if it is. I bought it out of an 05 cts-v and did the swap into my 03 non nav cts. My car never had xm installed so the menu never showed the xm bands . I thought all the cts-v nav units supported xm . Part number is 10373847. thanks

Yes it is supported as along as they have the XM option. I did the swap on my 03 base and noticed the XM channel the very first time I flicked thru the bands. It went way after that because I don't have the option.
Let me ask my question. If I buy a Unit with navigation and put in my Cadillac without navigation whether to run diagnostics system? I have heard that I have to completely reprogram this Navigation Unit with the dealer. Is that true?
Yeah its true, not necessarily a dealer but you have to plug a TECH-2 controller into it and it bonds the nab unit with your cars computer. To my knowledge only dealers and aftermarket audio places have TECH-2 controllers.
