    Swap '07 or later Nav/Radio into '05

    Will this work? Are there "deal breaker" issues or can it be done with very little drama? Will it fit in the dash w/o serious modification?

    I see these units available on occasion for $500 or less and always wondered if they were backward compatible with Gen II Escalades.

    I hate to break it to you but the third gen radios won't work in the second gen trucks due to different data bus protocols (its the same way with the 03-06 radios in a 02) the radios aren't swappable because of this
