Good choice! I have really enjoyed the addition of the factory DVD nav system to my 2000 STS.

right now there are 4 unites on ebay 3 for 499.95 1 of wich has a scratch on the left uper corner of the screan wich the guy said he would sel lme for 400 but im not sure is it worth it for a scratch to save 100 does a scratch really afect the way the touch screan works
there is also another one that is 549.00 but not sure why i would go with that one when the same company has 2 others for 499.95

The scratch is probably only really visible when the unit is off, but that's just a guess.

im just worried that it might couse the touch screan not to work properly is that possible it doenst like deep just like a scratch i can find the link for th eebay and send it to you so you can see it but not sure if you can tell or anyting like that so that is what im worried about also
if the scratch does get anoying or say when i have more money and want to fix it is there a way to just replace the screan or do i have to buy a junked unit and use the screan from that

darn was just doing a search on carparts.com
and found one about 1100 miles away a unite off a 2003 deville he said the car had 54k on it
and the unite looks nice but no way to power it up to test it
and he said 300 plus 25 shiped
i really want to get that but am afread to take the chance if i get it and it doenst work when jason puts it in if it doenst work im not sure is it worth spending hte extra 200 on the one on ebay that is garanteed to work becosue it has been tested
what do you guys all think

The junkyards usually have some sort of warranty...ask them. As for the nav disc, any disc that is listed as working for a Deville, Seville, or XLR will work, or a SRX disc up until 2005...the SRX changed type of nav unit in 2006. I just got a 2007 disc for my car, so I have a 2004 disc I can hook you up with if you want it. Let me know.

see the one thing that worries me is i know junkyards have warnaty but i dont want to get it unless they can tell me for sure that it will power up i dont want ot get it and then find out after jason instals it that it doenst power up so i think ill go with th eones from ebay
one of the ones on ebay has a scratch on it and i can get it for like 350
but will the scratch efect the way the touch screan works

At Least I can blame my spelling on my Wireless Keyboard!!! LOL The scratch Should not affect the operation of the unit since it is not sensing optically,.. but if the person selling the unit says it Works, ask Them, they should know. And if they Dont, then question why it's For Sale! Hope that Helps, tough buyin stuff sight unseen,.. especially online.

its not the personal owner that is selling the unit it is being sold from a seller that sells mostly keys and key fobs for these vehicles but he also has some other higher end items for cars and has this item

I have an extra Nav unit that is in MINT condition that I will sell u for $400. I can plug it into my cadillac and show you a picture of it powered up if you wish even. I will even include a copy of the nav disc that I have, although it is a fairly old one. The only thing you would need at that point is the GPS ant. I did the conversion on my caddy (2000 STS) with the harness and it is awesome. I bought an extra one and was going to do it to my other caddilac, but sold it.

Let me know if you are interested. I was going to put it on ebay soon anyways.

I thought Jason was installing the navi for you? If so, he will have it done in no time. Otherwise, it isn't a big deal to remove the dash pad...pop out the vents and remove one screw in each vent hole, and it's off. Then just unplug the connector on the left side of the instrument cluster and splice the VSS wire...done.

i was just tryign to figure out a way to do it myself it is good to learn to do things on my own at times but if i have ot take the dash pad off and other stuff would for sure rather watch someone as they do it so i can do it properly if ever asked or needed to again
but was thinking maybe i wouldnt have to and could have doen it myself but
going to take it to him to do it

i was just curiosue to see if that step could be skiped but guess it cant

You could tap into the VSS wire from under the dash. There is one at the harness down there for the cruise control. I think it was easier and less wire to run to go in from the top, though. You will have to have a VSS signal for the unit to work, however. Plus, you need to remove the dash pad to put the GPS antenna there.
