    Do some searches as your questions and any other questions you might think of have been answered many times.

    "Is my volume controls on the sterring wheel still going to work? Is the presets?" - Yes all of this will still work.

    "Im going to probally pick one up locally monday" - A dealer will charge you over $2500 and these are not sitting around in salvage yards so they are not easy to obtain.

    Near impossible to find, especially the '05 with the Navtraffic. I've been on a hunt since I got my car (of course I said I would never use Nav when I bought it). Im in NYC and it's at the point where I may just give up all together and buy a TomTom. If you can get one locally, let me know where locally is, and I'll buy it on the spot, like most everyone else in this forum.

    You mean the 2005 NAV system is not the same as the 2004's NAV system, it has been improved?

    -or-

    At a minimum, the Nav has updated software for integrating the traffic data. It could quite possibly require an add-on box to the existing factory XM tuner for the traffic decoder (or an updated XM tuner with that function integrated). Simply putting in an '05 Nav will not give you the functionality, since you will obviously need an factory '05 XM tuner and NavTraffic decoder box, if that's required. NavTraffic is a separate subscription from regular XM radio, and like the voice traffic on XM, only available in a few select metropolitan markets.

    While it has potential, it's not all that. You can get the same information verbally on specific XM traffic channels now. If the data is an hour old, its just as useless on your Nav as it is on a radio broadcast.
