: Anyone had any problems with aftermarket window tint?

I was reading the owners manual and it said something about not to apply aftermarket tint because it could cause the GPS not to work and the windows may have to be replaces and not covered by warranty.

I was planning on getting my windows tinted tommorow, but I don't want to mess anything up. Have any of you had any problems with tint?

No problems at all. my tinter always tells me it could cause a problem, but never had a issue with any of my Nav's not working correctly. :)

1. I never had a problem with tint and NAV either.

2. Replace windows????? All you have to do is get the tint film removed if there is a problem. Usually a shop charges 25-50 bucks to remove all window tint - which is done often when somebody gets a "fix it" ticket.

As said the tint can be taken off if you would have any problems with no damage to the windows themselves, I some times have it taken off if the dealer or new owner does not want it. :)

Thanks for the replies.

My CTS's nav worked fine with tint as well, but that was the first I had heard of anything like that. I'm off to get the windows tinted:thumbsup:

I got it tinted. They asked me did it have nav and I told them it did. He suggested that I use the non metalized tint that was $20 more. So I got that tint installed. He said it might not matter, but the better tint will not effect the GPS at all.

It will work with the metalized films as well. :)

I have not had any problems with either satellite radio or nav system with tint installed on an 07 EXT.

The concern is with metallic tint, and even then I'm not so sure its a problem.

No problems, I have my windows and windshield done. The places by me charge the same amount to take it ooff as they charge to put it on.
