    Upgraded My Nav Unit to 2012 SuperNAV

    bought it brand new from a local guy on craigslist.
    still had the sticker on the LCD
    installed it lastnight and got it unlocked today by my dealer.

    tip:dont buy the USB KIT oempartsco sells (not worth it.my fix is $5 and the same thing lol
    use a standard mini USB to plug into behind the nav unit and then a female to female USB adapter and plug in whichever device you please




    EDIT: Video ADDED

    parts Needed:
    micro USB cable
    female to female USB adapter
    iPod USB Cable

    Nice. How much did the nav run you if you don't mind? Any difference in performance since it uses a CF card and not a disc for the maps?

    That is what it is called at many places online...not sure why. I have mostly seen it called that when they're listed on eBay. I guess just because it's so large. Another example of this is found on the newer GM radios with hard drives, such as those found in the CTS. They have received the nickname "silverbox". Lol.

    $600 on Craigslist. Brand new! Guy imports cars to Japan and he told me they don't work over there. Sold my 2007 unit for 700 lol and the cf is almost instant maps. No loading like with the disc
