Can you reformat the 2000 Nav sys? From cd to DVD? Is there anything can be done? New, replace?

thanks

no
you cannot reformat it
only upgrade to a 02+ dvd unit but it is not a plug and play

Guess I will start looking for 02-05 system. Any good idea where to look? I know ebay, any place else? Would the dealer have one and if so, what year should I order?

Thanks

again
not plug and play
you must know what your doing to do it
simply plugging it in will fry your bcm

i maybe could make something up but youd have to be willing to run some wires and cut some

thats the nav systems i retrofit into non nav cars
but your car seeing how you have the cd rom nav stock is different
the plugs are totally different and some of the needed wires are located at the brain box and cd rom tray which is in the trunk

again i could probably fab something up for you if your interested...
